The Exonerated     
By Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen
September 25-27 at 7:30 p.m. and September 28 at 2 p.m.
H.B. Atkinson Theatre

Hear the shocking stories of six former death row inmates who were released from prison after their convictions were overturned. A worst nightmare becomes reality when the justice system fails, thrusting innocent people into the volatile depths of the prison system. Derived from actual interviews and infused with hope, The Exonerated reveals the truth behind the stories that were traipsed through the courtroom.

For Mature Audiences

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb 
Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins
October 31 and November 1 at 7:30 p.m. and November 2 at 2 p.m.

Devilish and delightful, Chicago is an indisputable Broadway landmark that delivers one big musical showstopper after another. John Kander and Fred Ebb's now classic score keeps the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses, Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart moving at a gunshot pace. A multiple Tony, Grammy and Oscar winner, this stinging satire on corruption, crime and celebrity based on true crime stories of the period features Bob Fosse's style of dance  during the "jazz hot" 1920's.

Rated PG-13
