Chicago: Teen Edition


Kirklees Youth Theatre Ensemble present Chicago: Teen Edition

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse. Music by John Kander. Lyrics by Fred Ebb. Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins. Script adaptation by David Thompson.

This amateur production of CHICAGO: TEEN EDITION is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals

Set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight.

With catchy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a funny, intelligent, and utterly engaging book by Kander and Bob Fosse, Chicago is a musical spectacular.

Presented by the KYTE Team who brought you The Phantom of the Opera, Oliver and The Sound of Music! Join us in this immersive piece of theatre as you’ve never seen it before.

This is Chicago: Teen Edition which had meant that the lyrics have been altered to make it a more family-friendly event.
