Q:Why A Chorus Line - High School Edition?
A: We looked at A LOT of shows finding a show that would fit 3 top criteria was very important to us. 1. We could produce safely. 2. We could use as many students as we can under the guidelines. 3. Will provide the students with educational opportunities that they have not have so far. This show checked the most of our boxes.
To those of you familiar with the original Chorus Line : This version is designed for highschool students and audiences. It still looks at the characters and the real life experiences and struggles but it does remove or changes the language that is not high school appropriate.
