To prepare for the performances, the cast has been rehearsing in a space the same size as The Hemmens stage at Bring It Sports Academy in St. Charles.
The show is directed by Colin Bokowy, with musical direction by Matt Bishop and choreography by Chloe Jancosek.
Tickets to the Broadway hit are affordably priced, said Flores, adding, "It's going to be a spectacular show."
