Lynbrook High School students took the stage for their production of “A Chorus Line – High School Edition” from Nov. 1-3. The Lynbrook community showed its support as they filled the John F. Branciforte Theatre at Lynbrook High School for each high-energy performance.
Led by Director of Fine and Performing Arts/musical orchestra director Joseph Pallotta, the pit orchestra provided the music for each performance. Members of the crew worked diligently backstage and the talented cast showcased their acting, dancing and singing chops with the help of choreographer Jessy Gill and vocal director Barry Wyner. The students proudly portrayed the characters of the award-winning musical as they took audience members into a chorus audition and the inner lives and ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies.
Directed by Joni Russo and Janet Rosano, students performed musical numbers such as “What I Did for Love,” “One,” “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” and “I Hope I Get It.” The show was adapted to be performed by high school students with set construction by Thomas Sena, costumes by Barbara Kirby, lighting design by Michael Visco and sound design by Sensory Lighting and Sound, Inc.
