The one singular sensation of musical theater history is finally coming to the McGonigle Theater stage this spring. One of the most iconic and well-known shows in Broadway history, A Chorus Line premiered in New York in 1975, redefining and forever changing the way Broadway is perceived. A Chorus Line tells the real life story of dancers as they audition to be in the chorus of a Broadway show, the “line” of final cut dancers pouring out their life stories to the director through monologue, song, and dance. Based almost entirely on the real lives of the original broadway cast, A Chorus Line is providing a new kind of challenge for Central and Oakland Catholic’s Masque. One, however, that the cast is not afraid to face.

A Chorus Line may be the most difficult show Masque has performed to date, with 15 minute songs, some of the original Broadway choreography, and no intermission. That’s right, 2 hours straight with no break. However, these challenges only motivate the cast to work harder, dig deeper, and learn what it really means to try to make it to Broadway.

The show dates will be March 22 @ 7:30, March 23 @ 7:30, and March 24 @ 2:00 and 7:30. The cast hopes to see you there!
