     The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Alumni Association will hold a dinner-theatre Saturday, March 3, on the Pitt-Johnstown campus.  The event, which is open to the public, is part of the Pitt-Johnstown Theatre Department’s production of the Tony Award-winning musical CHICAGO.

     The evening will begin with a reception at 5:30 p.m. in the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center’s studio theatre.  Dinner will be served at 6 p.m., followed by the performance at 7:30 p.m. 

     The cost of the evening is $46 per person for the dinner and show or $42 for Alumni Association members.  A dinner-only option is available for $22 per person. 

     The Pitt-Johnstown theatre troupe will take the audience back to Prohibition-era Chicago as famous murderer Velma Kelly achieves stardom when she is on trial for the murder of her husband and sister.  Now rising to the same stardom, Roxie Hart is on trial for murdering her lover.  Velma slowly begins to dislike Roxie because she is stealing her limelight.  The two create a musical spectacular throughout Roxie’s trial.

     Reservations are required for the dinner-theatre and may be made by contacting the Office of Alumni and Community Relations at 814-269-2080 by no later than Friday, February 24.  A reservation form also is available for download at
