Millikin Theatre AlumMillikin University graduate Cara Chumbley '12 recently wrapped up a month-long run as the female lead in the hit musical "The Producers." The production was held at Stage 773, a performance venue in Chicago that showcases established artists and up-and-coming talent.

A review at chicagotheatrereview.com said, "Ms. Chumbley, although not as statuesque as others who've played this role, has a smile that lights up the stage. Her innocent, yet sensuous 'When You've Got It, Flaunt It' is a showstopper."

Chumbley's theatre credits include "Curtains" and "All Shook Up," "Hairspray" and "Legally Blonde" at Circa, "Rent" and "Reasons to be Pretty" at District Theatre, and "Songs for a New World" at the former Harrison Hilltop.

Three other Millikin graduates performed in the "The Producers" alongside Chumbley.
