Production poster for PHS Drama's 'Chicago'Prairie High School Drama presents ‘Chicago’

Prairie High School Drama presents “Chicago” beginning Oct. 26. Set in the “Windy City” during the Roaring Twenties, chorus girl Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap. That is, until Amos finds out he’s 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.

Based on the award-winning musical written by Fred Ebb, Bob Fosse, John Kander and Maurine Dallas Watkins, PHS Drama’s show runs Oct. 26-27 and Nov. 2-3. The play has been adapted to be content-appropriate and flexible for high school students.
