SENIORS

(ELITE Musical Theatre Performance Program)

DANCE-1.jpeg
A Chorus Line - FULL.jpg

A CHORUS LINE is a stunning concept musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition. Exploring the inner lives and bittersweet ambitions of professional Broadway performers, the show features one powerhouse number after another. 

 

Memorable musical numbers include "What I Did for Love, "One," "I Can Do That," "At the Ballet," "The Music and the Mirror," and "I Hope I Get It." A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, A CHORUS LINE was instantly recognised as a classic.

 

A CHORUS LINE is a celebration of the human spirit, showcasing the artistry, dedication, and heart of the performers who bring theatre to life. Through its raw and authentic portrayal of the audition process, the musical remains a timeless tribute to the joys and struggles of the performing arts.
