A Chorus Line opens May 10th at The Heights Players!

A Chorus Line opens May 10th at The Heights Players
(Brooklyn’s oldest community theater celebrating its 57th season)

The musical for everyone who has had a dream and put it all on the line
(BROOKLYN, NY)  It is a classic story and a theatrical production that celebrates the true emotion, joy and passion of Broadway – it is A Chorus Line.  With a bare stage in an empty theater, dancers audition for the chance of a lifetime, the chance to do what they’ve always dreamed of – to dance in a Broadway show.  The Heights Players proudly presents A Chorus Line, winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, for three weekends in May, opening Friday, May 10th.

A Chorus Line (music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and book by James Kirkwood, Jr., and Nicholas Dante) offers a glimpse into the personalities of the auditionees and the choreographer as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers.  It is a tribute to everyone who has put themselves “on the line” at some point in their lives.

Directed by Thomas N. Tyler, the Heights Players production features: Tony Artiga, David Arzberger, Simone Bart, Andrea Bernardo, Timothy Chan, Sean Dearing, Aurora Dreger, Alyson Ryan Fuchs, Tom Giancursio, Marissa Giglio, Hilary Goldman, Dina Grilli, Nichole Jorgensen, Desiree Justin, Maureen Kelley, Whitney Kelley, Michael Kidney, Karen Mascolo, Adrian Miranda, Julie Reed, Ian Richardson, Kristen Robles, John Sabatos and Jason Schulof.

THE HEIGHTS PLAYERS – In December of 1956 a small group of people interested in theater held their first meeting as The Heights Players. The first production, The Hasty Heart, opened in February 1957 at the Unitarian Church; much interest was generated by this production and a second production, The Crucible, opened in 1957. It was apparent to all concerned that a theater group had been established in Brooklyn. During the following summer a Workshop Program was begun, introducing more performers and directors to the group. During this time, the Heights Players became a non-profit educational corporation under New York statutes. In addition to 56 seasons of staging classic repertory, The Heights Players has made many contributions to the community, starting with special Theater for Children performances. The group has provided traveling entertainment to Brooklyn hospitals, nursing homes and the Hale House in Manhattan, as well as participating in local street fairs. For many years, we provided special performances for local homeless shelter residents and senior citizen centers.
