Tacoma Little Theatre is holding auditions for its production of the Broadway classic, A Chorus Line. The production will be directed and choreographed by Eric Clausell, with musical direction by Jeff Bell.
Auditions will be held Sunday, December 8th and Monday, December 9th at Tacoma Little Theatre. Audition appointments will be in hour-long blocks on each night. Appointments will start at 6:00pm on Sunday and 7:00pm on Monday. Callbacks will be held on Tuesday, December 10th.
A CHORUS LINE is a musical that centers on 17 Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line of a new Broadway musical. Zach the director seeks to understand each dancer through a series of questions, which reveals the rich lives of the 17 dancers on the line. The show is set on a blank stage of a Broadway theatre. During a day long audition, Zach and his assistant take the dancers through their paces with jazz, ballet, and tap routines.
This show requires a cast comprised of triple threats, i.e. good dancers who sing very well and have the acting ability to bring these 19 very different people to life. The casting team will be looking for those that are equally strong dancers, singers, and actors. Due to the nature of A Chorus Line’s story, for those auditioning with less dance training, demonstrating an ability to learn and perform choreography at the audition will be important. NOTE: All roles dance in this production.
Actors of all ethnicities and gender identities over the age of 16 are encouraged to audition and all roles are available. For a complete listing of roles please visit the audition website.
Audition appointments will be one hour long. Please plan to stay for the entire hour of your appointment.
