As Sarah Potts considers heading off to Chicago, Amanda Billing is already there! However Amanda hasn’t left the country – instead she’s singing and dancing up a storm with Auckland Theatre Company. Amanda Billing is putting aside her stethoscope to star alongside Lucy Lawless in one of the most famous musicals of all time – Chicago.

The musical is a story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery, and treachery – not for the faint hearted! “I’m ridiculously excited,” says Amanda. “I haven’t actually sung properly in a while now, and this is a wonderful way to get back into it.” The season starts at Q Theatre in Auckland on Friday 1st November.

And if you want to know more about just what the show is about 20/20   receieved a backstage pass to follow Amanda as she heads for the bright lights of the theatre.

20/20 reporter Erin Conroy had exclusive access from first rehearsal to opening night, taking a behind-the-scenes look at the sweat and dedication needed to pull of one of the cornerstone shows in the Auckland Theatre Company’s 2014 programme.
