Those who own real estate in Rockhampton and enjoy the theatre may be interested to hear that the the local council's production of Chicago has been labelled a success.
With the last two performances being completely sold out, more than 4,000 people have now attended the various shows.
Among the crowd was Queensland arts minister Ian Walker, who said he was impressed with the production and felt that it only reinforced the importance of the 'Arts for All Queenslanders' policy. He said that the high-quality program is a testament to the talent of everyone involved and is a great boon for the community.
Councillor Rose Swadling, who chairs the Rockhampton Regional Council's Communities Committee was also full of praise for the show.
She said: "Council is very pleased that it has been able to offer this opportunity for local performers to benefit from the experience of working with Karen and her professional team.
"I would like to congratulate all those involved from the performers on stage to the orchestra in the pit to those behind the scenes. You have all done very well."
The show involved 35 local performers, backed up with a 15-member orchestra and a backstage crew of 20.
