Brock students perform ‘A Chorus Line’
Posted on: 5th January 2015
Brockenhurst College students took to the stage in December to perform their rendition of the famous musical, A Chorus Line. The legendary Broadway production, based on a true story, is one of the longest running musicals in history. Told through music, drama and impressive choreography, it tells the tale of young hopefuls trying out for a part in the musical.
The Brock production proved to be a huge success and the students were able to demonstrate their talents to a packed out crowd of parents and peers. 19 Sixth Form students, who are all studying a range of different subjects, starred in the show. Alongside their studies, they all worked hard last term to perfect their performances in the play. Director Rob Walker said, ‘this year we’ve been lucky enough to have students with a real breath of talent in singing and dancing as well as acting. A Chorus Line seemed the natural choice to showcase their talents to the fullest’.
Choreographer, Jo Lamaison, also commented, ‘the routines were based on the choreography from Michael Bennett’s film in 1985. The students were absolutely fantastic and worked excellently throughout the term to a produce a brilliant end result. Thank you to everyone who came and watched’.
