Chicago is one of the most iconic American musicals. It currently holds the record for longest-running Broadway Revival, thanks to the dazzling score, captivating story, and sensational dance. Set in the 1920s the show centers on a world of murder, fame, corruption, but most importantly: show business, and song/dance.

The show features a large cast of more than 80 students along with a backstage crew of equal size, working to bring the show to life. The production of “Chicago” highlights the Vaudeville backdrop for the show, which serves as a storytelling device and a platform for the show’s themes: the divide between appearance/reality, the nature of fame, the power of celebrity, and the workings of the justice system.

This production’s cast includes:

  • Roxie Hart: Olivia Pierce
  • Velma Kelly: Anelise Allen
  • Billy Flynn: Evan Wagner
  • Amos: Sammy Haines
  • Mama Morton: Lea Grace Swinson
  • Mary Sunshine: Oliver Leeb
  • Liz (“Pop”): Molly Thomas 
  • Annie (“Six”): Nicole Thoma
  • June (“Squish”): Cheyenne Isaac
  • Hunyak (Uh-Uh): Miriam Cubstead
  • Mona (“Lipschitz”): Amelia Ickes.
