Murray Bridge Players and Singers’ next production is sure to be a doozy full of floozies.

After five years of repeated requests, director Mari Reu has finally secured the rights to the hit Broadway musical Chicago, the tale of jazz age murderesses Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart and a rivalry that spans speakeasies and prison cells.

Anyone interested in joining the cast or crew is invited to an information night at the company’s Murray Bridge rehearsal shed at 9 Short Street at 7pm this Sunday.
