Thousands audition. Twenty-four make it to the stage. But in the end, only eight will win the chance to dance.
This is the story of the ones who make it … and the ones who don’t. Davis Musical Theatre Company continues its season with Broadway’s singular sensation, “A Chorus Line,” from April 25 to May 18.
“A Chorus Line is arguably Broadway’s greatest musical, and it’s a show that means a lot to me,” said John Ewing, DMTC board president and director of the musical. “Not only do audiences get a look inside the Broadway audition process, but they also get a look into the personalities and stories of the people who make dance and theater their life. The fact that the stories portrayed onstage are taken from the real experiences of real Broadway dancers is a wonderful bonus.”
“A Chorus Line” is the ultimate celebration of the American musical. Audiences will share in the story of 17 dancers competing for eight coveted spots in the chorus of a Broadway musical. Through the audition, they bare their souls while sharing stories of their childhood, ambitions, fears and experiences in show business.
This groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize-winning musical is for anyone who has ever put it all on the line, whether it is for promotion, for attention, for approval, or for love.
DMTC’s production is directed by Ewing and choreographed by Pamela Lourentzos, with musical direction by Steve Isaacson.
The show features such famous songs as “What I Did for Love,” “At the Ballet” and its signature tune “One (Singular Sensation).”
Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors 55 and over (plus a $2 facility fee per ticket), and are available at www.dmtc.org, or by calling 530-756-3682.
