valencia college theater kicks off season with broadway hit ‘chicago’

chicago-logoThe Valencia College Theater is proud to present the hit musical “Chicago,” from Oct.18-27, in the Performing Arts Center of Valencia College’s East Campus.

The winner of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations, “Chicago” roars onto the Valencia Performing Arts Center stage this fall.

See what makes this Bob Fosse musical deliciously dangerous and exhilarating – as the show says, it’s a story of “murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery – all those things we all hold near and dear to our hearts.”

Join Roxie Hart, Velma Kelly, Billy Flynn, the “Merry Murderesses” and all the iconic characters that have made this musical one of the biggest Broadway successes ever since its debut in 1975. The subsequent revival became the longest-running musical revival as well as the longest running American musical on Broadway. It is also the third longest running show in Broadway history.

Valencia’s production will be directed by program chair John DiDonna, with choreography by Eric Yow of Yow Dance, and musical direction by Tim Hanes.

On Oct. 25, the performance will be followed by a talk-back with the cast and crew.

General admission tickets cost $15. Senior citizens, Valencia faculty, staff and students may purchase tickets for $12. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.valenciacollege.edu/arts.

Use the code “VALENCIAWEB” for a $2 discount on each ticket. The discount is for online purchases only. Tickets and more information are also available by calling the college box office at 407-582-2900.

There will only be seven performances of this hit musical, so advance purchase is advised.

Please note: The play contains adult subject matter and is considered a PG to PG-13 rating.

Valencia’s East Campus is located at 701 N. Econlockhatchee Trail.
