Your alternator is dead. You can jump your battery for just long enough to get it in neutral for a tow or just to get your key out of the ignition.

Thats a chevy for ya ! Theres something weird between the shifter and the ignition. Turn the key as far as you can off, then put it in nuetrel. Start the car and it if starts, put it in park and turn the key off, if it is still stuck, keep trying .
