May 5 - 20: Musical "Chicago" at SJCT

San Juan Community Theatre's Spring Musical is Chicago May 5-May 14, 2017. Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins with script adaptation by David Thompson. Margaret Hall directs, music direction by Jim Collado and choreography by Lisa Duke.

SJCT’s production takes us back to the “musical vaudeville” days of 1927 Chicago. Think prohibition, speakeasies, lawlessness, flappers and jazz. All that Jazz* Funny Hunny * When You’re Good to Mama * Cell Block Tango * We Both Reached for the Gun * Razzle Dazzle * Mister Cellophane *

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 almost 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.
