Support Essex and Ivoryton Libraries! See “Chicago” at Ivoryton Playhouse, July 7

IVORYTON – The Second Annual Fundraiser hosted by the Essex and Ivoryton Libraries will feature Chicago at the Ivoryton Playhouse on July 7. Tickets include an elegant reception at 6 p.m., featuring hors d’oeuvres generously donated by The Copper Beach Inn. Red and white wine, champagne and sparkling water from Shore Line Discount Liquors of Deep River will also be served. The show performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

Chicago, the American musical set in Prohibition-era Chicago, is based on the play by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins. It tells the story of corruption in the criminal justice system and the notoriety of celebrity criminals through one show-stopping song after another with fabulous dancing. No wonder Chicago has been honored with six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations.

Everyone is encouraged to join the fun and wear red or black with flashy or snazzy accents to honor the Roaring Twenties.

Tickets are $60 and will be available at the Essex Library and the Ivoryton Library. If you are an Ivoryton Playhouse subscriber, please consider buying a ticket to the pre-show reception for $30.
