Talented young musical theatre performers will take to the stage in A Chorus Line at The Cresset in Peterborough on Wednesday, May 20.

Thirty one students from Wildcats Post 16 Academy in Stamford have been working hard developing and rehearsing the show over the past few months as part of their BTEC extended diploma.

Chorus Line is a stunning, instantly recognisable classic musical about a chorus audition for a Broadway Show.

Musical numbers in this brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama include: I Can Do That, At the Ballet, Dance: Ten; Looks; Three; 
The Music and the Mirror; What I Did for Love; One (Singular Sensation) and I Hope I Get It.

The dance numbers are choreographed by Vince Williams, who has worked with a number of high profile performers and shows including Girls Aloud, the cast of Eastenders and the film Nativity 3.

The show is directed by Megan Kelly and Kelly-Ann Gordon, with Adam Pallister taking on the role of musical director.

Post 16 Academy course co-ordinator, Kelly-Ann Gordon, said: "Chorus Line is a musical that is based on the audition process for a Broadway show, constructed from real life stories and set to music. The story tells of the rigour and determination needed to make it in a Broadway show through the eyes of in the individuals themselves. The students have worked incredibly hard during the rehearsal process and are looking forward to showcasing their work".

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the Cresset box office: 01733 265705 or online at http://cresset.ticketsolve.com
