Every recent grad has that feeling. That feeling that’s eloquently described in the opening number: “God, I hope I get it!” I’m a recent grad still living that. It’s tough, constantly being at war with the fact that you’re “too young to take over and too old to ignore.” We all have a story that we could share if we were sitting in that audition. A life changing personal experience that shaped us both personally and professionally.Richie

Every year there’s a new generation of fresh faces ready to prove that they’re worth the money. A new crop of people begging to be allowed to do a job. That’s why this show is timeless. It will never matter what year the current actors were born in. As long as we are growing and learning there will always be a moment when we look to the future and wonder what’s in store. This is why Playhouse on Park is the perfect place to do this show.acl mike

The Playhouse has made a serious commitment to arts education. In fact, its co-artistic directors are educators! The cast of a Chorus Line is mostly made up of students and recent graduates, acting alongside two seasoned equity actors. Playhouse no Park is a place of growth and learning, a place of discovery and confidence-building.
And the learning doesn’t stop at the stage: Playhouse on Park finds new ways to educate and engage audiences of all ages. So, when you come out to see A Chorus Line and are dazzled by the amazing choreography and bold directorial choices, be aware that you are also witnessing the passion and talent of recent graduates who have been given the opportunity to shine as a professional who loves their craft. acl bwbwONE
