ABOUT THE SHOW

A Chorus Line is a stunning musical-verite about a chorus audition for a Broadway musical. It tells of the achingly poignant ambitions of professional Broadway “gypsies” to land a job in the show, and is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration. A brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama, A Chorus Line is a one-of-a-kind show, truly “one singular sensation.”TRIVIA: This is the second time the Little Theatre has presented A CHORUS LINE. The first production was directed by Marge Castle and Jeff Green in June, 1995, and featured a young Arroyo Grande actor named Kevin Harris, who is now the Managing Artistic Director of the Little Theatre.
