“Chicago The Musical” will be performed by students this November by the Moorhead High School theater program. Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, the musical is based upon a 1926 play of the same name. The original play was written by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she reported on. The musical is a satire about corruption in the administration of criminal justice, plus the concept of the “celebrity criminal” in our society.
Mark your calendars and buy tickets early! The show dates have been scheduled for November 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 29 at 7:30 p.m., plus an extra Saturday matinee on November 29 at 2 p.m. (Thanksgiving Weekend). Tickets will be available for easy, online purchase as we approach the show dates, in addition to ticket sales at the high school activities office.
