Wheaton North Theatre to perform 'Chicago the Musical: High School Edition' April 21-23
Wheaton North High School presents "Chicago the Musical: High School Edition" on April 21-23.
This thrilling show is full of intrigue, murder, scandal, and the trial of the century.
Set in Chicago during the roaring 1920s, this show follows the story of Roxie Hart (played by Skylar Rasmason) as she is sent to prison for the murder of her adulterating lover.
Roxie's husband Amos (played by Cole Morgan) stands by his wife's side, despite her lying and betrayal.
While in prison Hart meets Velma Kelly (played by Bella Diaz), a former stage performer, now serving time for murdering her husband and sister.
Both Hart and Kelly dream about being able to once again perform on the stage, and with the help of Mama Morton (played by Katie Payne) they hope they can use the press to influence the jury that they are innocent. Will Billy Flynn (played by Cal Sohmer), the smooth talking lawyer, help free these two wannabe starlets, or will their verdict be guilty?
Show times are 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, April 21-22; and 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, April 23, at Wheaton North High School, 701 W. Thomas Road.
