The year is 1920. Prohibition is the era. And jazz is all the rage. People are shaking the blues away and making it hot! It does not take long for our two protagonists of the Cook County Jail, Velma Kelly, played by Kerrrigan Kaiser, and Roxie Hart, played by Senior Natalie Schwerdfeger, to discover that they are both out for the same things: freedom and fame. Their silver-tongued lawyer, Mr. Billy Flynn, played by Avery Harris, gives them an education money cannot buy. He shows these gals there is more to the truth than what meets the eye. Razzle dazzle them he says, and they will beg you for more.
Will Mama, played by Senior Taylor Boothe, help get them to the top? Will the press be on their side, and help get these murderesses off for their crimes? Or will they be the first to hang? In Chicago?! This outstanding adaption of the Bob Fosse’s Hit “Chicago” will keep you on the edge of your seats wanting more!
Let Preps Dance School & Company take you back to a time when the parties were getting longer and skirts were getting shorter, and all that jazz! Get your tickets now while they are still hot! This is a do not miss hit that is great for all ages.
