A CHORUS LINE AUDITIONS!!!!

Chorus Line

AUDITIONS! Saturday September 26th, 2-5pm at SCHMITT MUSIC CENTER and Saturday, October 3rd, 12-3pm at ARTS ASYLUM for Mid-Life Players’ concert style production of “A Chorus Line”, directed by Korey Childs with Assist from Kipp Simmons.

A CHORUS LINE is a stunning musical-vérité 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. Memorable musical numbers include I Can Do That, At the Ballet, Dance: Ten; Looks: Three, The Music and the Mirror, What I Did for Love, One (Singular Sensation) and I Hope I Get It. It is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama. The show was instantly recognized as a classic.

Prepare 32 measures of a Musical Theatre selection in the style of the show. Bring sheet music in your key, accompanist will be provided. No A’cappella or singing with CDs. Bring a Resume and Headshot if you have them. You may be asked to sight read music or cold read from the show, for we may not have callbacks.
