A Chorus Line
6 May 2016 - 8 May 2016
Savoyards Musical Theatre Brisbane QLD
Musical Theatre

AUDITION PACK All auditions must be registered. All details in the pack. Download from www.savoyards.com.au Minimum age is 17 years of age. A CHORUS LINE takes the audience through the final gruelling dance chorus audition for a new Broadway musical. Down to the final sixteen, the director wants to elicit a personal history from each one: how they got into “show business,” why they became dancers, what their hopes, fantasies and aspirations are. As he calls upon them individually, they react in every possible way, from bravado to reticence. From childhood on, their memories emerge, blending into a seamless series of musical numbers and monologues, some humorous, some poignant, some group reminiscences when they all share their adolescent experiences, and some intimate when he calls upon Cassie, his former lover who is asking for a chorus job after having been a featured performer. A CHORUS LINE originally began as a workshop "share" session. A group of dancers met after rehearsals for other shows to talk about their personal and professional lives. The sessions were tape recorded, written down, and a script was pieced together. The result is one of the most awarded shows in history.
