Rumer Willis is putting those dancing skills to good use.

The Dancing With the Stars season 20 mirror ball champion is making her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago.

Willis, 26, will take on the 1920s role of a young, sexy 20-something woman with dreams of becoming a jazz singer in the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

Currently, Roxie Hart is played by Brandy Norwood. Other famous faces who have filled those shoes over the years include Liza Minnelli, Brooke Shields, Ashlee Simpson, Melanie Griffith, Michelle Williams, Christie Brinkley. Not to mention, who can forget Renée Zellweger in the 2002 film adaptation that went on to win Best Picture?

This is not Willis' first time on stage, though. She also appeared in the Off-Broadway production of Nora and Delia Ephron's play Love, Loss and What I Wore.

But Rumer isn't the only Willis theatergoers can see on the Great White Way.

Rumer's father, Bruce Willis, is set to star in an adaptation of Stephen King's novel Misery, which opens on Oct. 22 at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York.
