“Chorus Line” to Open March 6 @ CCHS

downloadCulver City High School’s Academy of Visual and Performing Arts is proud to present A Chorus Line. A Chorus Line with music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante is about seventeen Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on… a chorus line. Set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition, A Chorus Line provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers. A Chorus Line has many memorable musical numbers such as, “What I did For Love” and “One.”

This popular show originally directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett has it all: singing, dancing, and compelling authentic drama. A Chorus Line is a celebration of the American Musical and a metaphor for life itself. An unprecedented box office and critical hit, the musical received twelve Tony Award nominations and won nine, in addition to the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The original Broadway production ran for 6,137 performances, becoming the longest-running production in Broadway history until 1997.
Parental Advisory: Contains strong language and mature subject matter. PG-13 rating.
