Desert Stages Theatre (DST) announces the opening of the teen show, “Chicago High School Edition” on Friday, August 30 at Scottsdale Fashion Square. “Chicago High School Edition” is based on the Kander & Ebb award-winning musical adapted by Samuel French. In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap. Amos finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another 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” is modified to be content-appropriate and flexible. It has been adapted to remove overtly sexual references and adult language and is being widely performed by high schools across the world. This Desert Stages Theatre production is being directed by Chris Chavez, choreographed by Madison MacDonald and features some of the valley’s top teen actors: Kyra O’Connor as Velma Kelly, Annibelle Washburn as Roxie Hart and Hayden Skaggs as Billy Flynn.
