“If you can’t be famous, be infamous!”  

 

In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine 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 first opened on Broadway at the 46th Street Theatre in New York City on June 3, 1975. The production, directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse, ran for 936 performances. On Nov 14, 1996, a revival of the show opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. It later transferred to Shubert Theatre, and then to the Ambassador Theatre, where, more than two decades later, it continues to run, logging nearly 10,000 performances.

These dates are: 31st May, 7th June, 14th June, 21st June 

FEES

Each of our Musical Theatre performance programs run over two terms, full fees and discounts are viewable HERE.

 

A Costume Hire fee of $65 (inc. GST) will be added to your Term 1 Invoice so the team can get your costumes ordered and ready for the musical in Term 2.


We always endeavour to keep costume costs at a minimum, so some simple costumes will be supplied by students while the more complex items will be supplied by ROCKIT Productions.

PREREQUISITE CLASS

Musical Theatre is the combination of Singing, Acting, and Dance used to create theatrical magic onstage and tell a story. ROCKIT believes the journey to the performance is just as important as the performance itself, and our doors will always be open to students regardless of previous training or lack thereof. However it is important our highest, most respected age group (SENIORS) delivers an expected level of performance, particularly in the discipline of dance.

 

The only prerequisite for joining our SENIORS Program, is one weekly technical dance class (Jazz,  Ballet or Intro To Dance) outside of the Rehearsal Room. Please nominate your selected class via the application form below...

FITNESS & FLEXIBILITY ADD ON

So often we hear our teen performers say "I wish I could kick that high" or "I'm not strong enough to do that" and we want to help them improve to be the best they can. To assist with this, we have added a class to the timetable specifically tailored for this age group wanting to improve their dance ability and work on their body strength and flexibility. This class follows immediately after our weekly SENIORS rehearsals from 7:30-8:30pm Wednesday nights.
