Directed and choreographed (adapted from Michael Bennet’s original Broadway choreography) by Amy Baker Schwiethale, “A Chorus Line” examines one day in the lives of seventeen dancers, all vying for a spot in the “chorus line” of a Broadway musical. After the first round of cuts, Zach, the director and choreographer, asks each dancer to speak about themselves. Discomfort opens into revelation, confession leads to redemption and within the bright, outwardly homogenous chorus, the audience begins to see each dancer’s individuality.

The School of Performing Arts is thrilled to announce that 2021 Alum Ariel Glorsky-Seyl will be joining the performance as a special guest artist to portray the role of Diana Morales in “A Chorus Line.” During her time at WSU, she played several roles including Susan in “[title of show]” and Amy in “The Theory of Relativity.”
