The story is about Roxie Hart (Madeline Canfield, Foxboro, MA) who murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos (Matthew Hawley, Norwood, MA) to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie meets up with another "Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly (Alexa Lieberthal, Wrentham, MA), who is not happy that Roxie is not only stealing her limelight but also her lawyer, Billy Flynn (Johnny Fullerton, Mansfield, MA). Roxie and Velma both vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the"American Dream": fame, fortune and acquittal.
