Playbill reports:

Concord Theatricals is celebrating the 50th anniversary of A Chorus Line and the 80th anniversary of its late composer Marvin Hamlisch’s birth with a special competition that will award free licenses of the musical’s Teen Edition to 10 schools in low-income communities. One Singular Sensation: A Chorus Line Licensing Competition is open to all U.S. high schools, with Title 1 and other under-resourced schools especially encouraged to enter.

Schools entering are asked to complete a written application that includes an essay on the prompt: “What makes your students singular sensations?” Video entries can optionally be included as well. Winners will be chosen based on a variety of factors, including financial need and answer creativity, with selected schools receiving a three-performance licensing package and all rental materials free of charge. Applications are being accepted through February 12, with winning performances required to be scheduled between June 2024 and December 2025.
