We are currently casting for the following productions:
- A CHORUS LINE, 2018 Summer Teen Conservatory (ages 15-20 ONLY)
- MARY POPPINS, Jr., entry to the Junior Theatre Festival
Conceived and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett
Music by Marvin Hamlisch
Lyrics by Edward Kleban
Book by James Kirkwood, Jr. & Nicholas Dante
Directed by Kody C. Jones
A CHORUS LINE is a stunning concept musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition. Exploring the inner lives and poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies, the show features one powerhouse number after another. Memorable musical numbers include “What I Did for Love, “One,” “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” and “I Hope I Get It.” A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, A CHORUS LINE was instantly recognized as a classic.
Auditions for A CHORUS LINE will be for students ages 15- 20 ONLY. We are looking for strong actors. Not a dancer? Not a problem! Our choreographer will give you the tools you need to perform.
