The all-star cast for the upcoming production of Chicago is hard at work rehearsing and preparing to ‘razzle dazzle’ audiences with their rollicking song and dance routines. The Eastern Sierra is really fortunate as Playhouse 395 was one of only six theater companies on the west coast chosen to perform Chicago this year.
Your friends, neighbors and co-workers in the cast are working under the inspired vision and direction of veteran Director Martha Reynolds. The very talented cast is led by Danielle Kuhl as Roxie, Jennifer Collins as Velma, and Playhouse veteran Ron Valenzuela as the unscrupulous lawyer Billy Flynn. While over 30 singers and dancers are rehearsing on stage, the orchestra is hard at work practicing under the direction of conductor Mark Hatter.

All of the cast and crew, orchestra, directors and producers of Chicago are volunteers who are putting in an incredible number of hours preparing to ‘razzle dazzle’ their audiences.
The producers of the show are looking for more volunteers for the three weekends of performances in March. Volunteers are needed to help with microphones, decorating the theater, serving as ushers and selling snacks and drinks during intermission. If you are interested in volunteering please call Nancy at 760-872-2852.
