first_imgMELROSE, MA — Wilmington’s Matthew Carpenito, Simran Johar and Kaitlin Sullivan will perform with Broken Leg Productions as it presents the jazzy “Chicago: High School Edition” at 7:30pm, from July 19 to July 21, at First United Methodist Church (645 Main Street, Melrose).Featuring 24 high school and college-aged students, the show takes on the all too timely themes of celebrity, politics, crime and punishment and gives them a “razzle-dazzle” spin. In Roaring ’20s Chicago, Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap… until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune and acquittal.Chicago does contain adult themes, humor and strong language.Tickets are $15 for adults, and $12 for students and seniors. Tickets will be available at the door and online at https://brokenlegproductions.com.(NOTE: The above information is from Broken Leg Productions and first appeared in the Wilmington Advocate.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
