Full of iconic songs and music such as All that Jazz, Razzle Dazzle, Mr Cellophane and Cell Block Tango, this fabulous show full of love, murder, courtroom drama and true showbiz has been chosen by Llangollen Operatic Society for its next production.
On stage at the Town Hall from April 22-25, Chicago couldn’t be more different from their last show, the smash-hit production of Fiddler on the Roof earlier this year.
Artistic Director Alison Ravenscroft said: "I’m really excited about putting on this show and, judging by the great feedback we’ve already had following the announcement, so is everyone else!"
Producer Helen Belton (My Fair Lady 2018 and Fiddler on the Roof 2019) has the strong team of Alison Ravenscroft as Director, Leigh Mason as Musical Director, Chrissie Ashworth as Assistant Director and Dan May as Assistant Producer and is herself hoping to be on stage.
She said: "Producing shows for Llangollen Operatic is almost a full-time job and it’s a wonderful feeling seeing everything come together but my first love will always be performing on the stage."
The society is having a meet and greet evening on September 17 at the Studio in Castle Street to welcome members both old and new to introduce their new season of rehearsals.
Helen said: "Come and meet us, we’re a very friendly bunch and there will be drinks and snacks available. There will be an introduction to the show and information about auditions will be available.
"If you are a dancer, singer or actor wanting to be in the show come along and find out more, we’d love to meet you.
"New members are always very welcome, and there is lots of opportunity to help with a production, even if you don’t actually want to be on the stage itself. Costumes, scenery, stage crew, front of house – there’s a role for everyone.
