Amateur theatre performers looking to turn their talents to the professional stage could see themselves looking out to a West End audience.

Michael Bennett’s production of A Chorus Line won nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama when it opened on Broadway in 1975 and went on to become the then longest running musical on Broadway achieving an astonishing 6137 performances. It features some of musical theatre’s best loved songs: One (Singular Sensation), What I did For love, I Can do That, Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love and Hope I Get It.
The revival of this multi-award winning musical is directed and staged by the original creative team Bob Avian and Baayork Lee.
HEAD SHOT SERVICE
If you don't have an industry standard headshot, we can help. Amateur Stage magazine has teamed up with actorheadshots.co.uk to bring you a special offer. A full photo shoot for professional actors usually costs £140 (over 300 shots taken for CD). The special price of £100 is being offered for exactly the same service. Or, for those looking to dip their toe in the professional world and just need a small selection of 50 shots on CD, a special offer of £60 is being offered (just quote "Amateur Stage Offer" in both instances).
A professional headshot from a specialised photographer will ensure you come across professionally from the outset.
