The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the arts sector, forcing many community theater companies, including the South Coast Choral and Arts Society (SCCAS) of Victor Harbor, to cancel all of their plans in 2020.
SCCAS is delighted to be back on stage with ‘Chicago – A Musical Vaudeville’. Opening at Victor Harbor City Hall in October, Chicago features a cast of local talent from across the South Coast.
Starring some of the best-known songs in musical theater, including “All That Jazz” and “Razzle Dazzle,” Chicago is a dazzling, satirical take on fame, justice and the media machine.
Set in 1920s Chicago and based on actual murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, an aspiring vaudeville star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her husband, Amos, to lie for her. .
In Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, notorious double murderer and nightclub performer Velma Kelly.
When the two recruit Chicago’s smartest lawyer, Billy Flynn, tensions peak as they vie for the limelight. Neither woman will be left out in their fight against each other and against the public for fame and fame.
Space is limited so book early. Tickets available at sccas.org.au or Victor Harbor RAA (66 Ocean St, Victor Harbor).
