    CHICAGO

    STRATFORD FESTIVAL THEATRE

    The ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE invite you to join us Thurs., May 21, 2020, for a day in Stratford!

    Devilish and delightful!  CHICAGO delivers one big beautiful musical bang after another.  Two rival vaudevillian showgirls are locked up in Cook County Jail!   Velma Kelly is serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two of them in the same bed.  And now, after the sudden spectacular demise of her lover, Roxie Hart has been tossed into the cell next door.  Two murderesses, as sexy as they are cynical, compete for the favours of celebrity attorney, Billy Flynn.   Is the plan to turn this into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy?  Is someone using murder to prepare the world for a splashy show-biz comeback?   Watch these two “killers” fight for publicity, perks, and Billy Flynn.  With its killer score and knock ‘em-dead dance numbers, this deliciously lurid tale of murder, greed, adultery – and all that jazz – packs some serious heat.

    PRICE $165.00 PER PERSON

    Includes:         

    • Luxury 29-seat bus transportation via Cherry Bus Lines. 
    • Dinner at the Parlour Vintage Inn, Stratford.
    • All Taxes and Tips.

    Bus departs 12 noon sharp from Holiday Inn, Scottsdale Drive.  Estimated return 8:00 p.m.

    ***REGISTER AND PAY BY CREDIT CARD ON LINE NOW AT www.probusguelph.ca/event.  OR BY CHEQUE AT MONTHLY MEETING.  FULL PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED BEFORE MONDAY, MARCH 30, AT NOON.***
