Step into a world where jazz meets justice with Maple Grove Senior High School’s production of Chicago! The talented students invite you to catch an upcoming performance.
Chicago tells the story of aspiring chorus girl Roxie Hart and fading star Velma Kelly, who each face trial for murder in the Roaring Twenties. The two women compete for the services of shady lawyer Billy Flynn, who promises to make them media celebrities and win them acquittals.
Chicago featured senior Camryn Findley as Roxie Hart, junior Elise Godin as Velma Kelly, senior Trey Schaefgen as lawyer Billy Flynn, senior David Kochenderfer as Roxie’s husband Amos Hart and junior Femi Fagbemi as Mama Morton, the matron of the women’s ward in the jail.
The production showcases the talents of all of the scholars in the show as they performed various singing and dancing routines while telling the story. A talented pit orchestra accompanied the performers during every song and were featured in the back of the stage.
Shows will take place Nov. 10-11 and 16-18 at 7 p.m. Visit the Maple Grove Musical Theater website to get your tickets.
