Sooner Theatre presents Chicago: High School Edition (matinee)
The Sooner Theatre will present six performances of Chicago: High School Edition, including afternoon matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap, until he finds out he has been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream:” fame, fortune, and acquittal.
Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse / Music by John Kander / Lyrics by Fred Ebb / Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins / Script adaptation by David Thompson
