‘Chicago’ promises to be sexy, sassy and a super-seller


Locals are in for a visual feast with the saucy season of Showbiz Queenstown’s Chicago opening tonight. 

Pictured (from left) are the show’s Merry Murderesses – Jodie Glinster, Christina Wilson, Zelia Horrell, Jen Shirra, Tiffany Menzies, Amanda Fernehough, Nicole McLean (Velma), Haley Purdon, Tiffany Mitchell, Tania Carter and Paty Kirchoff. 

The popular musical, directed by Bryan Aitken, has a local cast of 34 plus 12 in the orchestra and 54 other crew.
Showbiz spokeswoman Hilary Finnie says ticket sales are going well for the nine-show season, which ends next Saturday. 

Sales have so far surpassed those of Showbiz’s previous most popular show, Les Miserables, in 2009. 

Tickets, from $29.50 to $55 for evening performances, are available from Ticketek.
