Chester loves ‘Chicago’ and ‘Chicago’ loves Chester

The three performances of Green Mountain Union High School’s production of  Bob Fosse’s Chicago took Chester by storm last Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Below is a photo gallery taken at two performances. We also have video of three numbers: Roxie; All I Care About; and When Velma Takes the Stand.

Set in the 1920s and loosely based on true stories, Chicago is a satire on celebrity and the justice system.  Singer Velma Kelly (Katie McNally) and aspiring performer Roxie Hart (Rosie McNamara), await their trials for murder while scheming to get the greatest publicity value out of them.  Fritz Wendlandt directed the large cast and orchestra, which was supplemented by musical parents John Yake and Thom Huntington, in the Kander and Ebb score. Vocal direction was by Cindi Austin and choreography was adapted from Fosse’s original by Ashley Hensel-Browning.

Costuming was designed by parents Diane McNamara, Jill McNally and Paulette Martel with hair design by Salon 2000’s Sara Yake, Hannah Monier and Christy Patterson.
