The Musical A Chorus Line:
Set in the 1970s, A Chorus Line examines one day in the lives of seventeen dancers, all vying for a spot in the “chorus line” of a Broadway musical.
After the first round of cuts, Zach, the director and choreographer, asks each dancer to speak about themselves. Discomfort opens into revelation, confession leads to redemption, and within the bright, outwardly homogenous chorus, the audience begins to see each dancer’s individuality.
Based on real Broadway dancers’ stories, as told to fellow dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line is funny, heartbreaking, and refreshingly honest.
Take a look behind the scenes at what it’s like to audition for a Broadway show and get to know the people behind their dance numbers.
Recommended for ages 15+. Contains adult themes and strong language.

So Popera Productions:
The Production examines one day in the lives of seventeen dancers, all vying for a spot in the “chorus line” of a Broadway musical.
From Cassie, the star who just needs the “music and the mirror and the chance to dance,” to Val, a small-town girl with a brand-new big-town body, to Mike, who took his sister’s place in dance class, saying “I can do that.” Based on real Broadway dancers’ stories, as told to fellow dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett, is funny, heartbreaking, and refreshingly honest.
A Chorus Line is the performers show, with every audience member finding a small part of themselves in one of the characters.
