CHICAGO: Teen Edition
November 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST
In roaring twenties Chicago, Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap . . . until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal. Featuring iconic songs such as “Cell Block Tango” and “All That Jazz,” Chicago, directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse, has amassed over 10,000 Broadway performances, making it one of the longest-running Broadway musicals of all time.
Alexandria Area High School’s production features senior Parker Zwach (Jo, Little Women) as Roxie Hart and junior Chloe Roed as Velma Kelly, supported by senior Tai Auran (Laurie, Little Women) as Billy Flynn, junior Breck Hocum as Amos, and senior Naneisha Vargas as Mama Morton. Chicago: Teen Edition is directed by Jessica Chipman with vocal coaching by Kayla Noble, pit direction by Colt Lien, and choreography by Jackson Grove.
Reserve seating is recommended. Suggested audience: ages 12 and up.
