The Gazette sincerely apologizes to Boundary Music and Theatre for incorrect information in this week’s print issue. Following is the correct information:

 

Hello, theatre lovers of Grand Forks, you are in for a treat next week when the production of Chicago takes place.

It is on April 16, 17 and 18 at 7p.m. and on April 19 at 2 p.m. All performances are held at the Grand Forks Secondary School auditorium. Prices are $12 for students, and $15 for adults and seniors; get tickets at at gallery 2, Hannah Bees, and at the door.

This lively production is put on by Boundary Music and Theatre Society and from what I saw, it will be a very interesting event. The costumes are very good indeed, done by Natalie from Hedz Up Hair Salon. I saw some very good dancing also and singing to accompany it. Great talent indeed.

Once again Deborah Baker is in charge of the production and her son Aaron is doing the choreography. Some of the rough language has been taken out as this is a softer version of Chicago than the movie was. It has been tailored to suit the Grand Forks audience!

A small band accompanies this show and according to music director Lorraine Barg, it is very difficult music—many sharps and flats—but from what I heard, it was great. There is a flute, guitar and drums to aid Lorraine in her endeavour.

There are many talented people in this show, too many to mention here. Please pick a date and come on out and see it for yourself.
