CHS Theater presents …CHICAGO
March 5th-9th
Broadway’s longest-running American musical, CHICAGO, hits the Calabasas High School stage with a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murder trials, CHICAGO follows Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly as they vie for the spotlight– though instead of onstage, they’re mugging for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters. With catchy, sexy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a funny, intelligent, and utterly engaging book by Kander and Bob Fosse, Chicago is a musical spectacular that is as addictive as gossip tabloids and as unforgettable as any trial of the century.

Had an AWESOME experience at Board & Brush Creative Studio
We were turned into “DIY masters” – Starting with raw materials-the wood & understanding the knots, the color variations and the simple imperfections. Distressing, sanding with the grain, and staining are a few of the steps we went through to make our wood signs look amazing! Never used a hammer, sand paper, or a power tool? Don’t worry! They teach you everything. All workshops are a flat fee and include everything you need! So cool to start from nothing but a raw piece of wood and walk out with a beautiful, classic wooden piece handmade by YOU! I HIGHLY recommend. So special, so personal and timeless. I can’t wait to do it again!
