Set against a backdrop of the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, the Arts Center of Cannon County presents Chicago-the story of Roxie Hart (with Alexandra McNamara and Jessica Storvik alternating in the role) a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her-running September 14-23 in Woodbury.
Desperate to avoid conviction, Roxie dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly (Tiffany Sweeley), by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer Billy Flynn (Todd Turney) to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids. This show also features Layne Sasser as Mama Morton and Jonathan Higdon as Amos.
Performances are September 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m., and September 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students and seniors.
Chicago is directed and produced by Scarlett Turney with choreography by Kathryn Turney and music direction by Heather Moulder.
