I've been attending CDE productions for years and they just keep getting better and better- They're the best game in town!

Memorial Auditorium's Robert K. Walker Memorial  Theatre
 

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…

 

CDE not only provides quality entertainment and theatre for our local patrons, but they reach beyond their circle of performers to allow others the opportunity to experience the magic of theatre. Looking forward to many more productions by this excellent company.
