Sordid murder and glittering costumes collide as Chicago arrives at the Kings Theatre, Southsea from March 12-17.

Full of back stabbing tricks to get to the top, the iconic musical is brimming over with famous faces as it arrives in Southsea.

EastEnders actor Stefan Booth plays lawyer Billy Flynn, Bernie Nolan plays Matron Mama Morton, while Hollyoaks and Strictly Come Dancing star Ali Bastian plays showgirl Roxie Hart.

Set in 1920s Chicago, Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart are both put away for murder.

But, the two performers don’t want to sit back and face the death penalty, so pull out all the stops with lawyer Billy Flynn to win back their freedom.

The current production of the show first opened on Broadway in 1996. But it has gone on to be produced in the West End, and have a number of national tours.

The musical includes the iconic songs Razzle Dazzle and All That Jazz.

Tickets cost £20 to £35 from the Kings Theatre, Southsea on (023) 9282 8282 or go to kings-southsea.com.
