Ticket sales drum up extra CHICAGO performance in Lanark

Ticket sales drum up extra CHICAGO performance in Lanark

Thanks to a rush of ticket sales, Lanark Amateur Musical Society will be performing an extra night of the world-famous musical, CHICAGO, in Lanark Memorial Hall, on March 21st!

Vikki McIntyre, LAMS Club President commented: “We have been amazed at the ticket sales and are delighted that so many people are coming out to support our local group. CHICAGO really is going to be a fantastic show, and now there’s an extra night to enjoy it! The tickets are going like ‘hot cakes’ as they would have said in the 20s – get yours while you can!”

Set in the roaring twenties, CHICAGO sees chorine Roxie Hart murder a faithless lover and convince 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 features a veritable line-up of famous songs and dance numbers including “All that Jazz”, “Cell Block Tango”, “We both reached for the gun”, “Razzle Dazzle”, “Mr.Cellophane” and “Funny Honey”.

The original Broadway production opened in 1975 at the 46th Street Theatre and ran for 936 performances until 1977. Bob Fosse choreographed the original production, and his style is strongly identified with the show. Following a West End debut in 1979 which ran for 600 performances, Chicago was revived on Broadway in 1996, and a year later in the West End.

This amateur production of CHICAGO is being performed by Lanark Amateur Musical Society, a local group celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2019. Originally named the Upper Clyde Operatic Society, the group, now more often known as LAMS, perform a full-scale musical production in the Memorial Hall every year and host a number of fundraising events annually, including the Christmas Post.

See CHICAGO at Lanark Memorial Hall:
• EXTRA NIGHT – Thursday 21st March – 7.30pm
• Friday 22nd March - 7.30pm (very limited tickets remaining)
• Saturday 23rd March – 2pm Matinee (good availability)
• Saturday 23rd March – 7.30pm (very limited tickets remaining)

For tickets visit www.sllcboxoffice.co.uk, call 01555 667999 or visit the Lanark Memorial Hall Box Office.

This production of CHICAGO has been supported by the Border Biscuits Community Support Fund.
