Duluth Denfeld Theatre presented the musical Chicago at Lincoln Park Middle School Auditorium on Thursday night.

Performances at Lincoln continue at 7 p.m. today, and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday.

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together and driven chorus girl Roxie who is in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with.

Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance or at the door beginning 45 minutes prior to the show.

Take a bow, students: Reagan Kern, Madeline Watts, Anthony Bojorquez, Reggie Frederick, Lacey Osterlund, Jackson Chederquist, Cooper Kahring, Noah Miller, Jacob Waechter, Natalie Carter, Nissa Johnson, Elizabeth Blazevich, Ayla Bjerke, Emily Sommers, Kaitlyn Johnson, Emma Grover, Emma Schuyler, Bridger Oestreich, Natylee Anderson, Virgil Eugenis and Xaivier Byrley.
