ABOUT THE SHOW
CHICAGO is one of the most iconic American Musicals. It currently holds the record for longest-running Broadway Revival, thanks to the dazzling score, captivating story and sensational dance. Set in the 1920s the show centers on a world of murder, fame, corruption, but most importantly: show business, and song/dance!
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SHOW
As always, the BHS Spring Musical features a large cast (more than 80 students are in Chicago) along with a backstage crew of equal size, working to bring the show to life. Our production of Chicago highlights the Vaudeville backdrop for the show, which serves as a storytelling device and a platform for the show's themes: the divide between appearance/reality, the nature of fame, the power of celebrity, and the workings of the justice system.
Audiences familiar with the Broadway productions of Chicago (the original 1977 production or the currently-running revival) will know that the staging/costuming of these productions have mature elements. Rest assured, that while we have remained faithful to the script (which does include some minor adult language) the PAC production of the show will be appropriate for our High School Stage. We expect audience members of all ages will enjoy the show!
