The global COVID-19 pandemic impacted the arts sector in a big way, forcing many community theatre groups, including Victor Harbor's South Coast Choral and Arts Society (SCCAS), to cancel all of their plans in 2020.
SCCAS is excited to return to the stage with 'Chicago - A Musical Vaudeville'. Opening in the Victor Harbor Town Hall in October, Chicago stars a cast of local talent from across the South Coast.
Featuring some of the best known songs in musical theatre, including 'All That Jazz' and 'Razzle Dazzle', Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine.
Set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudeville star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her.
In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly.
When both women recruit Chicago's slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight. Neither woman will be outdone in their fight against each other and the public for fame and celebrity.
Seats are limited so book early. Tickets available at sccas.org.au or Victor Harbor RAA (66 Ocean St, Victor Harbor).
