At the height of the Great Depression, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow went from two small-town nobodies in West Texas to America’s most renowned folk heroes and Texas law enforcement’s worst nightmares. Fearless, shameless and alluring, BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE MUSICAL tells the story of the young lovers’ thrilling adventure to chase their dreams that put them in trouble with the law and led to their inevitable end
BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE MUSICAL stars Claire LaTourette as Bonnie and Nate Hall as Clyde. It also features Andrew Buel, Sean Caron, Eugene Cichock, Pierce Cleaveland, Jeri Hart, Christopher Johnson, Maeghan Looney, Courtney Miller, Jessica Miret, Patrick O’Keefe, Virginia Ramey, Justin Smith, Nate Strain, and Heather Zurowski.
BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE MUSICAL is directed by Joseph Jefferson award-winner Stephen M. Genovese, with musical direction by Aaron Kaplan. Costume Design is by Joseph Jefferson award winner Beth Laske-Miller, with lighting by Andrew Vanderbye.
BONNIE AND CLYDE: THE MUSICAL is the last of a four-show series which included Neil Simon’s California Suite, the musical Man of La Mancha, (book by Dale Wasserman, lyrics by Joe Darion and music by Mitch Leigh), and Proof by David Auburn. The next subscription series will begin in June with a production of 1776 (music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and book by Peter Stone).

About Skokie Theatre
The Skokie Theatre was originally built in 1912 and served as the local movie theatre for the people who lived in the Skokie area. The building fell into disrepair, until 2006 when the Skokie Valley Music Foundation spent over 1.2 million dollars to refurbish it and create a music hall that is unlike any other in the area. Its 140 comfortable seats, perfect acoustics, and elegant art deco architecture makes it a Skokie landmark. MadKap Productions took over management of the building in February, 2014 with the goal of establishing a full-time performing arts center. When not presenting plays, audiences can experience cabaret and concerts, dance, and comedy acts.
