A Chorus Line is a Pulitzer Prize and Tony winning musical classic which focuses on a group of dancers auditioning for a limited number of spots in a Broadway musical.  The musical shows the trials and tribulations of artists seeking work in the challenging theatrical world.  Featuring the songs “I Hope I Get It,” “What I Did for Love,” and “One,”  A Chorus Line offers a magical night of singing, dancing, and drama that audiences will never forget.

The musical is a backstage musical that shows the audience what it is like to audition for a Broadway show, except those auditioning get more than they bargained for when Zach, the director/choreographer of the show wants to know who the actors really are.  After some protest the actors begin to open up and share their story and love of dance.

A Chorus Line is one of the most beloved Broadway musicals.  This production features original choreography by Michael Bennett, modified by Director Ali Angelone. Music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban, book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante.

Join us as these characters find their voice and come along for the ride at Burtness Theater!  The experience really will be “One singular sensation!”   Music by Marvin Hamlisch, Lyrics by Edward Kleban, Book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante
