CHICAGO comes to Frankston this week.
The acclaimed jazz musical Chicago will open at the Frankston Arts Centre this Friday. The satirical show, set in the Windy City during the 1920s, examines crime and corruption.
PLOS Musical Productions will stage the show. The show is the company’s first since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rachel Rai has been cast as lead Roxie Hart, an aspiring vaudevillian who is sent to jail after murdering her lover. Rai said that playing the role is “a dream come true”.
“Performing [Chicago] after being off stage for a couple of years is absolutely wonderful,” she said. Fellow performer Nadia Gianinotti, who plays Velma, agreed. “To be performing in front of an audience will be great,” she said.
Chicago will play at the Frankston Arts Centre from 29 July until 3 August.
