Chicago: The Musical - July 11 to 15, 2018 - Regina Performing Arts Centre
Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, this dazzling, satirical musical tells the story of two rival vaudevillians who vie for the spotlight on and off stage. Nightclub star Velma Kelly, who murdered her husband and sister after finding them in bed together, and ambitious chorus girl Roxie Hart, who killed her lover and tried to convince her hapless husband to take the blame, are thrown together in Cook County Jail. When superstar lawyer Billy Flynn takes on both women's defenses, tensions mount and a media frenzy ensues. Velma and Roxie find themselves competing for the attention of the press but soon discover that fame is fickle and fleeting.
