Los Alamos Little Theater To Present ‘Chicago: A Musical Vaudeville’ May 5-20

Los Alamos Little Theater

For months there has been a tale of mayhem, booze, and jazz unfolding at the Performing Arts Center. Lucky for Los Alamos residents, starting May 5, they can see it in person as the talented cast and crew of the Los Alamos Little Theatre present their rendition of the record-breaking Broadway smash, Chicago: A Musical Vaudeville

Brought to you by the creative team that has produced the now beloved Atomic Follies Cabaret series, Chicago, set during the height of the roaring ‘20s, centers on chorus girl Roxie Hart, as she dreams of becoming a star in vaudeville. Along the way, she commits adultery, murder, perjury and more. Will she make it? Will her world become reality? 

Roxie’s role, played by Holly Robinson, shared that “Roxie is complicated, she is self-centered, mean, rude, and callus,…but she is just like all of us; a bit insecure and unsure, but she hides it well.” 

Megan Pimental, who plays Velma Kelly, says she is excited for the community to see an “…incredible dance show, with iconic music and a superstar team. It’s one of the best shows we’ve ever done!” Newcomer Donavan Price said she grew up watching musicals. Her mother took her to see productions in Columbus,Ohio almost every year, and in that same city she had her first part in the musical classic, R.E.N.T. You’ll find her killing it as Matron Mama Morton. 

Regarding Roxie’s husband, Amos Hart, a role played by Patrick MacDonald, he stated that “Amos isn’t usually thought of as a dancing role… just wait…we’re exploring all of the interpretations of selling out, and what it does and doesn’t get you.” 

In addition to the stellar cast listed above the show also features Kevin Pelzel as Billy Flynn, Heather McCulloch as Mary Sunshine, and more than 20 additional cast members, many of whom are new to the Los Alamos theater family, bringing this epic musical to life. 

The creative and technical team are led by: Hadley Hershey, Nick Denisson, Brad Gregory, Chandra Marsden, David Daniel, and Jacquelyn Connolly, along with numerous assistants and more than 30 crew members. This massive production with non-stop live music, singing, and dancing is sure to delight. Don’t miss it!
