Initial casting has been announced for the Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston's upcoming production of the award-winning musical Chicago, which will begin performances June 13.

Directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran Gerry McIntyre, the limited engagement will continue through June 23.

The cast will be headed by Angie Schworer as Roxie Hart, Sara Gettelfinger as Velma Kelly and Rick Pessagno as Billy Flynn.

“We couldn't be more excited about opening our 45th anniversary season with Chicago," said Robert Eagle, founder and producing artistic director of Reagle Music Theatre, in a statement. “Our audiences have been clamoring for us to do this show for years, and we've finally been able to get the rights and assemble the team to make it a reality. Gerry McIntyre is a fabulous director and choreographer with a wonderful sense of style and fun. And Angie, Sara and Rick are going to sizzle together on stage. They are all tremendous triple threats.”

Chicago, with a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Ebb, is described as a "smart, sassy, sharp-edge satire in which 'merry murderesses' Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly vie for headlines and the services of the slickest defense attorney in Chicago, Billy Flynn, during the madcap Roaring Twenties."

Reagle Music Theatre is located at 617 Lexington Street, Waltham, MA. For more information visit reaglemusictheatre.org.
