Shrewsbury High are proud to present the High School Edition of Chicago, a darkly satirical razzle-dazzle musical set to the backdrop of Prohibition-era in Chicago, Illinois. 
 
The show has its origins in real life, high profile crimes, criminals and trials of the 1920s. Maurine Dallas Watkins, a newspaper columnist at the time, shared these stories with the public and her writing became so popular that she chose to use the material for a play. Chicago, the play received critical acclaim from audiences and critics alike and made its Broadway debut in 1926. The play (and later the musical) poked fun at corruption in the criminal justice system and introduced the idea of ‘celebrity criminals.’
 
A long-standing musical in London and New York, Shrewsbury High are excited to be the first school in Shropshire to bring this iconic musical to Theatre Severn.
