Hillsdale High School Drama is proud to announce our 2019 fall musical, CHICAGO. With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, CHICAGO is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history and it shows no sign of slowing down! |
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.
CHICAGO is directed by Allison Gamlen, with musical direction by Matt Mattei, choreography by Sabrina Braccini, lighting and scenic design by Tom Stucke, sound design by Grant Huberty, and costume design by Thaine Sugden.
CHICAGO is a production not to be missed. And all the reviewers agree. Time Magazine calls it A Triumph, Newsweek raves Smashing and Entertainment Weekly sums it up by calling CHICAGO Broadway's Most Electrifying Show.
Performances take place in the Hillsdale High School Auditorium October 24-27. Hillsdale High School is located at 3115 Del Monte Street, San Mateo. The Auditorium entrance is on the 31st Avenue side of campus.
This performance contains adult language and subject matter. Recommended for audiences 12+.
