“Ok, one last time, facing away from the mirror, from the top… A FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT!”
In an empty theatre, on a bare stage, auditions for a new Broadway musical are almost complete. For everyone there, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It's what they've worked for - with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It's the one opportunity to do what they've always dreamed - to have the chance to dance.
Whittling down, number by number, a select few remain on the line for the final round. But what do you say when the director doesn’t want to hear you sing another song, or dance one more time, and instead asks... who you are? What lead you here? And why do you do what you do?
A Chorus Line departs from the usual glossy backstage musical by presenting a true picture of what it’s like to be in the theatre: glamorous at times yes, but also tough, heartbreaking and sometimes even tragic. As their individual stories pour out in song and spoken words, interspersed by complex dance routines, the audience, and the director Zach, will soon discover no two performers are alike, yet all same the same passion… To be on that stage no matter the cost!

fitness and flexibility add-on
So often we hear our teen performers say "I wish I could kick that high" or "I'm not strong enough to do that" and we want to help them improve to be the best they can. To assist with this, we have added a class to the timetable specifically tailored for this age group wanting to improve their dance ability and work on their body strength and flexibility. Our 'Fitness and Flexibility' class follows immediately after our weekly SENIORS rehearsals from 7:30-8:30pm Wednesday nights for only $10 per class.
