Set in Chicago during the Roaring Twenties and jazz age, the dazzling, satirical show of Chicago: High School Edition depicts a story of corruption in the 1920s, where jazz and murder are all the rage. Roxie Hart, after murdering her love affair, Fred Casely, depends on Billy Flynn, a famous attorney, to help her reach her dreams of becoming a star. Along the way she meets one of the “merry murderesses," Velma Kelly, who sweeps Roxie up in the world of jazz. This comical, satirical show explores the themes of celebrity, scandal, and the concept of the “celebrity criminal.” The music will make you dance in your seat with songs like “All That Jazz."
