A Chorus Line opens October 7 at Cottage Theatre
Cottage Grove, OR -- Cottage Theatre continues its 2016 season in October with one of Broadway's most enduringly-popular musicals. A Chorus Line, a sensational showcase of dancers, hopes, and dreams, is the sixth longest-running Broadway musical of all time. Cottage Theatre's production of A Chorus Line opens October 7 and runs for four weekends through October 30.
A Chorus Line takes place on a bare stage during the final grueling audition for eight spots in a new Broadway musical. The theatre is full of professional dancers, all of whom are longing for their next chance at the big time. As the gypsies’ hopes pour out in song, words, and dance, their stories become a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration. The memorable musical numbers, including "I Hope I Get It," "The Music and the Mirror," and "What I Did for Love," capture the very essence of American Musical Theatre. Winner of the 1976 Tony Award for Best Musical, A Chorus Line is a brilliant fusion of dance, music, and compellingly authentic drama.
Cottage Theatre's production of A Chorus Line is directed and choreographed by Lanny Mitchell. Music direction is by Mark VanBeever, lighting design by Amanda Ferguson, and costumes by Rhonda Turnquist. The large ensemble cast includes Stefhani Anderson, Rafael Batya, George Butterick, Josh Carlton, Kyle Carrillo-Enders, Autumn Carter, Chris Carter, Ryan Dallimor, Eric Elligott, Breanna Estrada, Amanda Ferguson, Nicole Garibay, Joel Ibanez, Ariel Long, Marcee Long, Lanny Mitchell, Kathryn Pearson, Anna Petrick, Jessica Rossi, Janet Rust, Natalie Tichenor, Heidi Turnquist, and Kory Weimer.
A Chorus Line runs for fifteen performances at Cottage Theatre from October 7 - 30. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm, and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm.
