Glenbard North High School's theater program will present their spring musical, "Chicago: High School Edition," with book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins and script adaptations by David Thompson.

It's 1920s Chicago, where jazz and fame are found around every corner. Housewife Roxie Hart dreams of fame and fortune, yearning for her name in lights.

Together, they develop a deep rivalry while competing for fame in the hope it will keep them from their fate.
