Pop! Six! Squish. Uh uh. Cicero. Lipschitz…

Featuring a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, and music by John Kander, this electrifying production has been a mainstay on Broadway since 1996. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and Velma Kelly and our company of “merry murderesses”, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, fame, fortune, and, maybe, an acquittal. This sharp-edged satire features a dazzling score with songs like “Cell Block Tango”, “All That Jazz”, “When You’re Good to Mama”, “Mr. Cellophane” and more! Slick your hair and wear your buckle shoes, and join us for this timeless classic!

CHICAGO: TEEN EDITION is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.




Registration has now closed.


“STAR has been an integral part of my life for the last seven years. STAR has not only helped me to grow as a performer but as a person as well. While performing with STAR, they instilled a passion for performing, knowledge of design, and unmatched care for others that I carry with me to this day. As an employee for STAR, I try to instill those same values in my staff and workshop participants. There is no other place like STAR in Catonsville, Maryland, or beyond. STAR is a beautiful family of which I am proud to be a part of.”

Charlie Roberts
STAR Kids Director and past YA Participant

“The STAR Ltd. program has provided my very different girls with gifts that are hard to put into words: confidence, inclusion, community, teamwork, patience, discovering talent, dealing with disappointment, along with the skills needed to become better musical actresses. I am forever grateful a friend recommended STAR to us seven years ago.”

Lori Hall O’Donnell
Educator and Parent of STAR Kids, Jr., and YA program participants

“STAR has been a part of my life for nearly 10 years now. Not only do the directors always work hard to put on an amazing show, but also they truly care for the cast. As STAR has grown, I feel like I have grown with it. The people I have met have become some of my closest friends and mentors. I recommend STAR to anyone who wants to gain valuable theatre experience while having an amazing summer.”

Lydia Newman
College student, and STAR Kids, Jr., and YA participant

“Our daughter absolutely loves STAR! She immediately felt like part of the group, and we have been thrilled with the friendships she has made! The shows are so entertaining, it’s hard to believe they do that in just 3 weeks!”

Kathy Meiller
co-owner of Narcissus Salon & mom of STAR Jr. participant

“STAR is like a second family to me. Everyone is supportive and caring of each other. The environment is great.”
