A Chorus Line
@Village Theatre and Art Gallery
I Can Do That Theatre Company presents our teen cast in A Chorus Line, a stunning musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition. This show features memorable songs by award-winning composer, Marvin Hamlisch, including “What I Did For Love,” “I Hope I Get It,” “One,” and the song for which our company is named, “I Can Do That!” A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance and a compellingly authentic drama. A Chorus Line promises to bring you one powerhouse number after another! While A Chorus Line is a mature show, we have made adjustments to accommodate a family-friendly audience. Multiple shows from June 14 through June 23.
