"CHICAGO The Musical" is an ISP (Independent Student Production) from Cardinal Theatre Productions at the University of Southern California. With an all student cast and creative team, this full scale production of CHICAGO is being produced completely independent from the USC School of Dramatic Arts and needs your support!
After an intense month of music, dance and blocking rehearsals throughout November, the cast and crew of CHICAGO are excited to perform this incredible Broadway musical for audiences at USC. As an Independent Student Production, we are responsible for paying for all of the costs associated with putting on such a huge production. With expenses ranging from licensing fees to costuming fees to set and lighting rental costs, the funds needed to pull off a production of this size can be pretty staggering.
We are asking for your support to help us pull off what is sure to be an incredible show. With the amount of talent and dedication in our cast and creative team, the show is sure to be a huge success. We would love for you to join with us in bringing "CHICAGO The Musical" to USC with whatever you can donate! We encourage you to take advantage of some of the fantastic rewards offered with our different donation tiers!
Thank you so much for your support and we hope to see you in February at the USC Massman Theatre for "CHICAGO The Musical."

Risks and challenges
With a production of this scale and size, there is an inherent risk for an Independent Student Group to attempt to mount the show. The production value of the show is incredibly important to us, but without outside support, many of the design elements of the show run the risk of not reaching our high standards. Cardinal Theatre Productions has been working on "CHICAGO The Musical" since this past July and after a month of grueling rehearsals, we are incredibly excited for audiences to come enjoy this amazing show.
Although there is a risk that production quality might suffer due to lack of funding, we are working incredibly hard to ensure the production is held to the highest standards. At this point in our project, the theater space rental and licensing contracts have been secured. So no matter what happens, the show will go on!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
