The Westminster College Celebrity Series will present A Chorus Line Tuesday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. in Orr Auditorium.
The show is a tribute to the late Marvin Hamlisch, who composed the score for the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning production and appeared at Westminster during the Celebrity Series' 1997 season.
The story of 17 dancers vying for the make-or-break opportunity of appearing in the chorus line of a Broadway musical resonates with everyone who has had a dream and risked everything for it.
A Chorus Line has had many productions worldwide and was revived on Broadway in 2006. It still ranks as the sixth longest-running show in Broadway history.
Tickets, starting at $33, are available from the Celebrity Series box office at (724) 946-7354. Visit the Celebrity Series website for additional information.
