OLCHS Presents Chicago


OLCHS is bursting to announce the first fall musical in the brand-new Performing Arts Center will be the Broadway hit Chicago!

There is no better way to break in a new theater than with Broadway's longest running musical. Chicago originally opened in June of 1975 and was directed and choreographed by the famous Bob Fosse. It was re-introduced in 1996 and went on to win 6 Tonys! Oak Lawn Community High School brings its version to you this November under the artistic direction of Jeff Pastiak and musical direction of Mark Baglione. 

Set in the 1920’s, Chicago is a musical Vaudeville play packed full of singing and dancing sensations. Roxie Hart, a fame hungry housewife, finds herself on death row for murder. Desperate to avoid conviction, she hires the highly sought-after, cunning attorney, Billy Flynn, whose tactics launch her into stardom for all the wrong reasons. The energy is electric. The singing and dancing are spot on. It’s simply bound to be a smash! 

Cast members Bianca Honeycutt, Grace Sievers, and Daniel McLawhorn boast that the show will be, “amazing…spectacular… and adored and loved by many.”  When asked what is the best part of being in Chicago, Carrie Hartman, Noah Swanberg, and Abby Harris all stated, “we work hard…build bonds… and become a family.”  The cast and crew couldn’t be more pumped to be the first to perform in the new Performance Arts Center. Abbey Dayton, Tomas Walsh, and Fabian Quintero all agree, “It feels like the beginning of a new era…this theater is a symbol of pride…honoring everyone who came before us….and finally proving that we deserve this!” Don’t miss your chance to witness these amazingly talented teens while supporting the arts in your community…”and all that Jazz”.
