Blue Fish Theatrical Presents: Chicago
Queensland's hottest independent musical theatre company proudly present Kander and Ebb's theatrical masterpiece, CHICAGO.
To coincide with the 15th anniversary of the Tony Award®-winning Broadway revival and the 10th anniversary of the Oscar®-winning motion picture, Blue Fish Theatrical proudly present a special revival featuring local Queensland talent!
Staged as a musical vaudeville, this highly-acclaimed biting satire tells the tale of merry murderesses Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly vying for celebrity and fame with the aid of razor-sharp lawyer Billy Flynn, and a striking ensemble of sinister performers. Set against a backdrop of the jazz-age roaring 1920s, CHICAGO is a show-stopping cavalcade of corruption and scandal.
Featuring Jessica Papst as Velma Kelly, Cait Gregor as Roxie Hart, Wade Colbran-Thomas as Billy Flynn, Natalie Ridoutt as Matron Mama Morton, and special guest Marc James as Amos Hart – plus a dazzling 14-piece band live on-stage!
