Audition date set for ‘A Chorus Line’
The Theatre Project will host open auditions for its upcoming production of “A Chorus Line” at 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, at the Theatre Project Stage, 835 N. 26th St.
Because of adult subject matter and content, the production is rated R.
“‘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 news release said.
Those auditioning should come with a completed audition packet and be ready to learn choreography and music. Call backs will take place immediately following the initial audition.
Audition packets and information are available at TheatreProjectGJ.com.
