A Chorus line
May 20 - June 13, 2009
Winner of nine Tony® Awards, this "One Singular Sensation" follows 17 would-be dancers in their quest to make the cut for a new Broadway Musical. The quintessential backstage musical, A Chorus Line, recreated on the Playhouse stage, complete with Broadway sets and costumes, offers an intimate look at the lives of gypsy dancers and their quest for a spot on the line. It's what they've worked for - with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It's the one opportunity to do what they've always dreamed of. One by one, they come forward to share their stories. They put themselves on the line to get a job on the line. And when they're done, so is the audition. And only eight will remain.
“As an audience member watching a polished production, it's easy to forget how much work goes into it, especially a singing and dancing extravaganza. The performers make it look so easy that even those in the audience who can't dance will start to feel their toes tapping. Some may even think for a moment, "Maybe I can do that." It's all part of the magic … There is little doubt that Ogunquit's talented cast of dancers can execute all the dance moves demanded of them, especially after seeing them strut their stuff in the grand finale of "One." They are a singular sensation well worth checking out.” –Portland Press Herald
