Special Event - Senior Citizen Dinner and Play

Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci and the Nutley Department of Parks and Recreation have collaborated with the Nutley High School Culinary Program and Arts Program to present Nutley Senior Citizens with a special night out!

Resident seniors can enjoy dinner prepared and served by the Nutley High School Culinary Classes along with the fabulous production of “CHICAGO  teen version” free of charge.

Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve

This special evening will take place on Thursday, February 9, 2023.  Dinner will be served in the cafeteria of Nutley High School beginning at 4:30 p.m. with the show immediately following 5:30

Performances of “Chicago” will open to the public on Friday, February 10th.Pre-registration is required for participation at http://register.communitypass.net/nutley.  “This is an inspiring approach to engaging our senior community in activities that will bring them happiness and keep them involved in community events while supporting the fine programs NHS has to offer” stated Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci.
