A Chorus Line

Now Accepting Video Auditions!

For students currently in grades 8-12

Break a Leg is proud to announce the next musical for our high school students, A Chorus Line is one of the longest running shows in Broadway history and is also the winner of 9 Tony Awards as well as the Pulitzer Prize.


A Chorus Line is a stunning concept musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition. This iconic musical is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the theater.  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 recognized as a classic and is also a celebration of the American musical itself.

This production will feature the original Michael Bennett choreography and a very special guest New York choreographer, Chryssie Whitehead. We hope you’ll join us for another fantastic summer as we create new memories with this beloved musical.
