Based on the book by Fred
Ebb and Bob Fosse, with music
by John Kander and lyrics by
Fred Ebb, “Chicago” won six
Tony awards and six Drama

The sharp-edged satire fea-

11 a.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.; and
July 12, from 2 to 5 p.m.
The story is set in Chicago
during the Roaring Twenties
and revolves around “Roxie
Hart” and “Velma Kelly,”
each of who has been sen-
tenced to death row.
Each vies for the spotlight
and headlines before ulti-
mately joining forces in
search of the American dream
— fame, fortune and acquit-
tal.
Performances will be Nov.
6, 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15, includ-
ing four evening shows
beginning at 7 p.m., and two
