Is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the American Musical Theatre: the chorus dancers those valiant, over dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who back up the star or stars and often make them look even more talented than they are. It is also a celebration of the American Musical itself. A Chorus Line is also about competition, and competition might easily be the common denominator that grabs the audience and holds it by the collective heartstrings until the final, ultimate choices are made. For everyone, at one time or another, puts his life on the line. We all compete, no matter what business were in, for promotion, for attention, for approval and for love. Specifically, A Chorus Line takes the audience through the final grueling audition run by the director, Zach, for a new Broadway musical. Directed by James H. Williams (This Apprentice Players production is not part of The Belfry Theatres regular season) Conceived and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett
