About A Chorus Line High School Edition


A Chorus Line is a stunning concept musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition. Exploring the inner lives and poignant 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, the show was instantly recognized as a classic.  A Chorus Line - High School Edition is a full-length version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, adapted for performance by high school students with family audiences.

This production was rehearsed and filmed from September 2020 through January 2021.  Each student recorded their own part for each song and the scene they were in.  This was a mammoth effort on the part of the cast, crew, and adult production team.
