Chicago

Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to see a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery, and treachery – all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts.”

Directed by Leigh Rivenbark, St. Thomas University’s Musical Theatre Class presents Chicago: a tale of fame, justice, and crime set deep within the wild and roaring 1920’s.

Former chorus girl Roxie Hart finds herself in a load of trouble when she is put behind bars for the murder of her now ex-boyfriend Fred Casely. Unable to talk herself out of her problems for the first time in her life, she is forced to rely on the help of those around her, all of whom seem to be in it for themselves in one way or another.

With the aid of her fellow convicts, her beleaguered husband, and a fast-talking lawyer, Roxie begins to understand that in the city of Chicago, murder is entertainment.

And she may become the biggest act they’ve ever seen.
