CASTLETON - The Theatre Arts and Music Departments at Castleton State College are collaborating on "A Chorus Line," the musical about a group of performers auditioning for roles in a chorus line. This is the first time a Castleton production will run over a two-week period.
The original Broadway production, directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett, won nine Tony awards, including Best Musical, as well as the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Although a product of the stylized 1970s, the themes of "A Chorus Line" are universal and timeless.
Harry McEnerny directs the Castleton production. Hank Vaughan, director of the Spartan Marching Band, is the musical director.
The choreography is by Andrew McDuff, a Castleton graduate, who grew up in Pittsford and has choreographed shows for the Rutland Youth Theater and Middlebury and Otter Valley high schools.
Performances of "A Chorus Line" will take place in the Casella Theater Thursday, March 17, through Saturday, March 19, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m. The second week of performances runs from Wednesday, March 23, through Saturday, March 26, all at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for general admission. To reserve tickets, call the box office at 802-468-1119.
