In this groundbreaking rock musical, the ancient game of chess becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super-power politics, and international intrigue. From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental score that includes “One Night in Bangkok” and “Heaven Help My Heart.”

CHESS is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals (

During the two-week intensive, Broadway industry professionals partnered with Sheridan College faculty to prepare students and community members for their roles in the musical. Students were able to choose between a Performance Intensive option, which focused on voice, acting, and dance, or a Tech Intensive option, which focused on backstage, lighting, and sound. Each day students participated in various workshops, lessons, and rehearsals alongside professionals from across the country.
