2021-22 Season — EMERGENCE


​​​​​​​One thing the COVID pandemic has shown is that people long for the communal experience of live theatre. As we finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and emerge from months of separation, the Missouri State Department of Theatre & Dance is planning a full season of live performances:

Live Performance

A CHORUS LINE

  • Book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante
  • Music by Marvin Hamlisch
  • Lyrics by Edward Kleban
  • Conceived by Michael Bennett
  • Directed by Sarah Wilcoxon
  • Craig Hall Coger Theatre

On the bare stage of a Broadway theatre, 24 hopeful dancers audition for eight positions in the chorus line of a new musical. After the first round of cuts, 17 remain. Zach, the show’s choreographer/director, asks that they introduce themselves and speak about why they became dancers. As the individual dancers share their backgrounds, dreams and insecurities, their unique personalities emerge. Based on the experiences of real Broadway dancers, stories range from the humorous to the heartbreaking to the triumphant, reflected in songs including “At the Ballet,” “Dance: 10; Looks: 3,” “What I Did for Love” and “One.”

Winner the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nine Tony Awards,

A Chorus Line remains a “singular sensation” that still resonates with audiences today!
