Chicago: Teen Edition

Based on the 1926 play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, and set in roaring twenties Chicago, the musical follows Roxie Hart, whose crime of passion lands her on Merry Murderesses Row, sharing the spotlight with vaudeville icon and fellow felon Velma Kelly. To keep their names in the headlines and themselves off death row, Roxie and Velma ultimately join forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune, and acquittal. Chicago: Teen Edition has a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, Music by John Kander and Lyrics by Fred Ebb, and is performed by students ages 13-20.

Performances run July 21-30, 2023.  Ticket link will be available in May. 

Shapeshifters: A Queer Comic Book Musical

A Co-Production between Ballyhoo Mainstage and The Summer Intensive Program

Shapeshifters, written by Truth Future Bachman (they/them), is a music-theatre multiverse dedicated to LGBTQIA2S+ superheroes. Using the lens of superhero science fiction, Shapeshifters encourages young queer and trans participants, and their allies, to consider what “others” them as their superpower, and is equal parts entertainment, education, and empowerment.

The show is still being workshopped following a presentation at Joe’s Pub in NYC. This actor-driven production for ages 13-25 is part of the pilot development process and will include the making of a short documentary as record of the show’s growth. The show is designed to allow participants to create text as part of the narrative, providing the opportunity to inject their personal DNA into this theatrical experience. With a fantastic techno-inspired score unlike anything you’ve heard before, Ballyhoo is thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of the creation of a new musical!

Performances are August 11-13, 2023.  Ticket link will be available in May.
