OPENING NIGHT GALA! September 7, 6:30 pm. Beer, wine, and refreshments available. Lake City Playhouse theater is proud to present "A Chorus Line," the seventh-longest running show in Broadway history.
"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. 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, A Chorus Line is funny, heartbreaking, and refreshingly honest. Director: Brooke Wood Musical Director: Jesse Hampsch Choreographer: Trigger Weddle Assistant Director: Jessica Peterson Assistant Choreographer: Reese Weddle Stage Manager: Seth Weddle Show dates are select dates and times from September 7 through September 23.
