“Chicago” is now the highest-grossing theater performance in Niceville High School history, according to the NHS Theater Department. The play brought in almost $31,000 dollars over two weeks. 

“This is unheard of for high school theatre!” said Niceville High School’s Theater Director, Ritchie Jackson, “We are so utterly thankful for the community’s support. We are still reeling at the success of “Chicago” and are so excited for next year!”

The play had six performances over two weekends and wrapped this Saturday night, April 8th.
