A Chorus Line

A Chorus Line

In an empty theatre, on a bare stage, casting or a new Broadway musical is almost complete.  For 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime.  It's what they've worked for - with every drop of sweat, every hour lf training, every day of their lives.  It's the one opportunity to do what they've always dreamed - to have the chance to dance.

Winner of nine Tony Awards, including "Best Musical" and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  This is A CHORUS LINE, the musical for everyone who's ever had a dream and put it all on the line.  This singular sensation now comes to the Lakeshore on The Masquers Stage.  Come meet our generation of "Broadway's Best"!

A Chorus Line was received by large audiences throughout its run at the Capitol Civic Centre.  It was a very successful first show of our 83rd Season.
