ALEXANDRIA — The Alexandria Area High School Theatre Department will present "Chicago: Teen Edition" Nov. 17-20 at the Performing Arts Center.
In the Roaring Twenties Chicago, this musical satire follows felon jazz stars, Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, as they vie for fame and attention in search of their "American Dream" – fame, fortune and acquittal. Featuring iconic songs such as "Cell Block Tango" and "All That Jazz," Chicago has amassed more than 10,000 Broadway performances, making it one of the longest-running Broadway musicals of all time.
“I am proud of the product. The process and work has created a gratifying show and I am excited to show the community,” said AAHS senior Tai Auran, who plays Billy Flynn.
Alexandria Area High School's production also features senior Parker Zwach as Roxie Hart and junior Chloe Roed as Velma Kelly, junior Breck Hocum as Amos, and senior Naneisha Vargas as Mama Morton.
"Chicago: Teen Edition" is directed by Jessica Chipman with vocal coaching by Kayla Noble, pit direction by Colt Lien and choreography by Jackson Grove.
Reserve seating is recommended. Suggested audience is for ages 12 and older. The show will run Thursday, Nov. 17 through Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. and also on Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 20, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students.
