CHICAGO Teen Edition
Broadway’s longest-running American musical, Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. 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-- though instead of onstage, they’re mugging for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters. With catchy, sexy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a funny, intelligent, and utterly engaging book by Kander and Bob Fosse, Chicago is a musical spectacular that is as addictive as gossip rags and as unforgettable as any trial of the century.
· All those auditioning will get a fair, unbiased chance as per our non-discrimination policy.
· The cast list will be posted by noon on Saturday, April 9th.
· Auditions and casting are a very exciting and stressful time for those auditioning, as well as the production staff. Please remember that casting is not a personal refection on you as as an individual. There are a variety of factors that go into casting, including—vocal range, dancing & acting ability; chemistry with other actors and scene partners; schedule availability; attitude; and to some degree—reliability and behavior issues from past productions. Inevitably, there will be some hurt feelings, however I expect everyone to keep negative comments to themselves. We will build each other up as a cast instead of tearing one another down. A positive, team-centered attitude is essential!
