The production of Chicago was another huge culminating project for the Akins Journey theatre program, involving dozens of singers, dancers, actors, and musicians.

This high school edition of the famous Broadway production was a major undertaking for the theater department. According to the directors, there were many obstacles that made Chicago a challenging play to stage.

This year the theatre department welcomed two new directors to the stage: Kade Lasseigne in technical theatre and Audrey Sansom, who works at both Akins and Paredes Middle School.

The play also relied on students to help with creating much of the choreography for the play. Senior Jonathan Macedo, sophomore Abigail Segura, and sophomore Kacey Wasson.

In the playbill for Chicago, the directors thanked many people who were instrumental in putting on the play. They thanked the Akins Eagle Jazz Band for producing the live music performed throughout the play.

The Diamond Dazzlers and their faculty directors were also thanked for preparing three dance routines and being a part of the production.

The musical was also helped by having Mary McKenna serve as a vocal coach that worked to help the performers perfect the songs in the play.

The directors thanked Conceptual Creations for allowing them to use a movable two-story set piece that was used throughout the play. The set piece was also used in the district-wide production of Newsies this past summer.
