Chicago is a vaudeville-style musical set in the 1920’s that focuses on the influential power of media within the justice system, the fleeting thrill of criminal celebrity, and women who long for something other than a quiet life at home. The musical, created and directed by Bob Fosse, John Kander, and Fred Ebb, is an iconic American musical and a staple of Broadway culture.  

“I’m beyond excited to share Chicago - High School Edition with the Kent Place community. The cast and crew have worked incredibly hard to put this show together, and I couldn’t be more proud of the dedication everyone involved has shown,” says Lillian Gabriel ’23, who plays Roxie. “Between the large ensemble, the intricate Fosse choreography, and difficult songs, it’s safe to say that this is not an easy show, but the level of talent and work ethic we have in this cast wouldn’t lead you to that conclusion. This is a really special show and an even more special team, and I think everyone watching will be shocked by the level we were able to reach with this production. Make sure to get tickets for November 11 and 12—you won’t want to miss it!”
