ABOUT A CHORUS LINE: A Chorus Line, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, Lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood Jr.,Nicholas Dante and winner of 9 Tony Awards, 6 Drama Desk Awards and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama is a story that focuses upon 17 dancers auditioning for spots in a new Broadway Musical. Individually and collectively they step off the line to share their stories, some hilarious, some poignant and some vulnerable, but all relatable. With vibrant and heart rendering numbers “What I Did for Love”, “One” and more, A Chorus Line is as relevant today as it was over 40 years ago. This brilliant musical relates to anyone who “puts themselves on the line” chasing their dreams through hard work, sweat and hours of training with no guarantee of success.
BCCPA in its second year is fast approaching its mission to develop a permanent, professional Theater in Doylestown by providing quality productions and entertainment for public enjoyment and hiring local talent as well as performers from the surrounding area to perform in plays that we produce. BCCPA works to find new composers, cultivate new playwrights all while educating young performers. Ultimately their goal is to introduce educational programs in acting, dancing, singing, set design, lighting design, costume design and various musical instruments.
