One Singular Sensation Lights the Stage at Squitieri Studio Theatre
Press release from Buchholz Drama
Step, Kick, Kick, Leap rings through the halls of Buchholz High School as students ambitiously take on the classic musical of A Chorus Line: Teen Edition. A show that highlights the struggles and vulnerability of performers as they showcase their talents to be the One Singular Sensation.
With a cast of over 20 students, 2 student directors, and 2 student choreographers, this is a show with a lot of heart, sweat, and showbiz.
Student directors Natalie Culleton and Madeline Smyth said, “We wanted to work on this show as a way to stay involved in our senior year and develop our leadership skills. It’s an amazing opportunity to direct a show with such a range of actors in the cast. For some, this is their first show, while others are seasoned performers.”
“A Chorus Line is extremely character-based and gives us the opportunity to work with the individual actors to develop their roles in depth. We have loved the chance to work through the complexities of rehearsals, schedules, and safety in such difficult times, and we’re excited to be leaving our mark on the drama program.”
A Chorus Line: Teen Edition hits the stage from February 10th through the 20th. Shows are Thursday-Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm. The location is the Squitieri Studio Theatre at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

A Chorus Line is a musical with music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban, and a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante. Centered on seventeen Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line, the musical is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition for a musical.
A Chorus Line provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers and the choreographer as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers.
