Cottage Theatre holds auditions for A Chorus Line
Cottage Grove, OR — Cottage Theatre will hold auditions for A Chorus Line on Saturday, July 23 starting at 10:00 am. A Chorus Line, winner of the 1976 Tony Award for Best Musical, will run for four weekends at Cottage Theatre from October 7 - 30. The play will be directed and choreographed by Lanny Mitchell. Roles are available for approximately 13 men and 12 women, and the director will consider a variety of ages.
The sixth longest-running Broadway show ever, 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.
These auditions are open to any interested performers and no appointment is necessary. Dancers are asked to bring both jazz and tap shoes and come prepared to sing 16-20 bars of a song from the musical of your choice (but not from A Chorus Line). Further audition details are available at www.cottagetheatre.org or by calling Cottage Theatre at 541-942-8001.
