The sights and sounds of 1920s Chicago came to life in Trumbull High School's musical production of CHICAGO: High School Edition, which opened this past weekend at the school's Robert E. McCarthy Auditorium.
The student company, under the direction of Trumbull High’s Jessica Spillane, delivered an audience-pleasing show driven by strong lead performances, whirling Fosse-inspired choreography, dazzling set pieces, professional calibre lighting, and an all around exceptional cast chemistry evident from the moment the curtain rose.
The show chronicles the rise of celebrity criminals during the height of the Roaring 20s, and follows the story of Roxie Hart, an aspiring Vaudeville performer who finds herself jailed for the murder of her secret lover. Intent on making a name for herself, Roxie sets out to parlay her newfound criminal infamy into a successful career in show business. Filled with smart satire, charismatic characters, and witty humor, Trumbull’s rendition of ‘Chicago’ delivers an authentic period performance with themes that instantly resonate with modern audiences.
