CHANTILLY - The Chantilly-based Encore Theatrical Arts Project is known for its Broadway-style music and dances, and its upcoming production features this genre at its best. It’s a Broadway-musical revue called, “Another Opening, Another Show.”

“I picked some of my favorite numbers and some I thought the audience would love,” said Encore founder, director and choreographer Raynor van der Merwe. “We go from old musicals like ‘A Chorus Line’ and ‘Kiss Me, Kate,’ that were big hits in their day, to modern-day musicals like ‘Hamilton.”

So, she said, “The show ranges from a traditional, Broadway feel to some unexpected jazz, tap and vocal numbers that’ll truly take the audience through many, different genres of musical theater. It’s an upbeat, feel-good show that’ll take the audience on a journey for an hour and 45 minutes and will, hopefully, leave people feeling happy, joyous and whistling a tune.”
