EMERALD'S Megan McPhee is gracing the Brisbane stage, starring as Mona in the Blue Fish Theatrical's production of Chicago.

But after 12 years with Emerald Academy of Dance, "she had it coming".

"It's definitely different to the comical Disney happy ending I'm used to. This show is dark, sinister and sexy," Megan said.

"It gets better every time we perform it."

The production is in its final stages at the University of Queensland's Schonell Theatre in St Lucia, where Megan is also studying physiotherapy.

Chicago is Megan's debut in musical theatre and she is loving every minute of it.

"I've done many annual dancing productions and concerts with Emerald Academy of Dance, but this is the first time I've auditioned for a full-on theatrical piece," she said.

"The cast have formed a really strong bond and it's both a pleasure and an honour to work with such phenomenal local talent.

"For a small, independent company Blue Fish are so professional and do such a wonderful job of putting on a crowd-pleaser. I love the audience's reaction."
