Mainstage Center for the Arts presents, Chicago (High School Edition) by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. November 16 and 17. Broadway’s longest-running American musical, Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Nearly identical to the original, the high school edition removes two songs due to adult language and overly sexual references. Set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy and lustful superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight. Music and lyrics are by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and book by Kander and Bob Fosse. The production takes place at the Dennis Flyer Theatre on the Blackwood campus of Camden County College, November 16, 7 p.m. and November 17, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets available online at or by calling 855-936-2467, ext 3.
