For those who can't get enough of vaudeville and the Prohibition era, Emma Knights Productions is bringing classic musical Chicago to Adelaide this May. But there's a twist...
One lawyer, two women, three corpses and a band of murderesses. Come bear witness to the underhandedness of the celebrity defence and the acts two women are willing to commit in order to prove their innocence. Chicago focuses on Roxy Heart and Velma Kelly as they strive to become 'celebrity criminals!'
Roxy Hart and Velma Kelly are two femme fatales striving to become celebrity criminals and avoid the hangman's noose. Helped along by their lawyer, Billy Flynn, and Matron 'Mama' Morton, Roxy and Velma learn that life behind bars isn't so easy with greed, corruption, violence, exploitation and treachery all a part of the journey.
Of course, the first lesson you learn in the big house is that secrecy is paramount. If you want the low down on the juice joint where this little party will take place, you'll just have to book a ticket. All that can be said is that it'll be out west of town, near to public transport. A week before your booked performance, check your email to find out the location and password needed to get past the guards and enter the show.
