Glenbard West Theatre to bring razzle dazzle to 'Chicago: Teen Edition' April 20-22
Glenbard West Theatre will present "Chicago: Teen Edition" April 20-22.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday to Saturday in Glenbard West High School's newly renovated auditorium, 670 Crescent Blvd. in Glen Ellyn.
Set in the 1920s, "Chicago: Teen Edition" tells a dazzling, satirical tale of fame, justice, and the media. Roxie and Velma are on their way to becoming famous performers, but their hopes are dashed when they wind up in jail for crimes they "didn't" commit. They leverage the press and their own loved ones in a quest to not only be acquitted, but to achieve stardom.
Featuring "All That Jazz" and "Razzle Dazzle," "Chicago: Teen Edition" is a rousing, energetic story that leaves you wanting more.
