Beacon Performing Arts Center presents CHICAGO: High School Edition

August 23rd – 24th, 2018 | 7:00pm

The Theatre at Beacon High School
101 Matteawan Avenue – Beacon

Tickets available at the door or online:

In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal.

Chicago: High School Edition contains suggestive themes and may not be suitable for all ages. Parent discretion is advised.
