Rehearsals commence for CHESS the musical - new singers welcome!

Join the Darwin Chorale to sing in their upcoming concert version of CHESS the musical to be performed at the Darwin Entertainment Centre on Sat 28 October. 
 
This highly acclaimed musical is a significant and powerful piece of music theatre involving American/Russian relationships during the Cold War through World Chess Championships and a romantic love triangle. The principal pawns are the loutish American Grandmaster, the earnest Russian challenger, and the Hungarian/American female chess assistant who arrives at the international championships in Italy with the American and falls for the Russian. The Russian is keen to defect to the West. From Tyrol to Thailand in 1986-7 the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score.
 
Many will recognise the hit songs “One Night in Bangkok”, “I know Him So Well” and “Heaven Help My Heart”.
 
Rehearsals commence 7.30pm Wed 19 July at Charles Darwin University performance room. Contact darwinchorale@gmail.com for membership information or more information about CHESS call Annette on 0408 036 252. No limit to chorus numbers!
