Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television, and Theatre (FTT) announces A Chorus Line, conceived and originally directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett, in the Patricia George Decio Theatre at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, April 18 - 21, 2024.

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. Born from real-life testimonies, audiences are allowed a glimpse into the lives of professional dancers as they bare their hopes, dreams, and ambitions on stage.

“While bringing to life the beloved music and characters of A Chorus Line, we hope to transport audience members to the present with this production,” says Matt Hawkins, FTT’s Acting Director of Theatre & Director of Musical Theatre, “the audition process is grueling work for actors and dancers, and we hope to showcase that reality on stage as we bring this production out of the 1970s and into 2024.”

The production is directed by Matt Hawkins, with lighting by Kevin Dreyer, scenic design by Marcus Stephens, costume design by Lynn Holbrook, choreography by Theresa Thomas, and poster art by Evelyn Berry.
