For 17 dancers, auditioning for a new Broadway musical is the one opportunity to do what they’ve always dreamed—to have the chance to dance. A Chorus Line, winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, is the longest-running American Broadway musical ever.
According to director Clay James: “A Chorus Line represents a great learning experience for all students involved. We have a fast, four-week rehearsal period. The show is being presented without an intermission and without edits. It can be a grueling process, but the work we’re putting in (including a Master-class via Skype with Pricilla Lopez, who originated the role of Diana on Broadway) will result in a great show. I hope folks enjoy it.”
