SJCT's spring musical in 2017 takes us back to the "musical vaudeville" days of 1927 Chicago. Think prohibition, speakeasies, lawlessness, flappers and jazz!
Based on the book and play by a crime reporter for the Chicago Tribune, the musical explores the themes of celebrity, scandal and corruption, centering on two alleged murderesses up for trial: Velma (a vaudevillian, played by Lisa Moretti) and Roxie Hart (a housewife, played by Amanda Smith).
Director Margaret Hall has assembled an island cast of more than 50 talents, utilizing their acting, singing or dancing skills (all three for many), to bring the high-energy, sizzling, award-winning story to the Whittier stage for the first time.
Directed by Margaret Hall - Music Direction by Jim Collado - Choreography by Lisa Duke
Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse - Music by John Kander - Lyrics by Fred Ebb - Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins - Script adaptation by David Thompson
