“Ladies and Gentlemen, you are about to see a story of
murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery, and treachery – all those things we all hold near and dear to our hearts. Thank you. “
CTC are pleased to announce our second show of 2020. The smash-hit, killer musical; CHICAGO. Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb. Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins and script adaptation by David Thompson.
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. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.
Keep your eyes peeled for casting announcements and box office release – it would be criminal to miss this show!
This amateur production of ‘Chicago’ is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD, a Concord Theatricals Company.
