It’s no surprise that Savannah Dixon is playing one of the leads in the upcoming Davie High Theater production of Chicago! The Musical.
It’s her favorite play.
“I love Chicago!,” she said. “I love the songs. My mom loves it. We’ve seen it on Broadway, so it’s really cool to get to do it.”
Students will present the play on the school auditorium stage at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students.
“It’s Chicago, the teen version, adapted for high school students,” said Chad Edwards, theater arts teacher and play director.
“It’s a great play with some familiar songs, such as ‘All That Jazz’ and ‘Mr. Celephane’.”
There are 22 students in the show. Each had to audition to be included.
“I think it’s going to be an amazing show,” Edwards said. “They have worked really hard.”
