Summer Arts Intensive presents ‘Chicago’WEST FARGO – Summer Arts Intensive will present the musical “Chicago” Aug. 1-4 at West Fargo High School.
“Chicago” is the story of 1920s-era jazz-age chorine Roxie Hart, who murders a faithless companion and convinces her hapless husband to take the rap.
Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media, and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines.
“Chicago” features a cast, crew and orchestra of more than 50 artists from the Fargo-Moorhead area.
Performances start at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 1-3 and 2:30 p.m. Aug. 4.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and $10 for students. They can be reserved starting July 22 online at westfargotheatre.com or by calling (701) 499-1971 from 1 to 4 p.m.
