CIVIC THEATRE OPENS SEASON OF RAVES WITH A CHORUS LINE
2012-2013 Mainstage Season Premieres with Broadway Classic
Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre is set to draw the curtain on its 98th season with A Chorus Line. The nine-time Tony Award winning Broadway favorite will open Friday, September 7, and run through Saturday, September 22, at The Tarkington at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel.
One of the longest-running American Broadway musicals of all time, A Chorus Line tells the story of 17 dancers, auditioning for the chance of a lifetime. On a bare stage, in an empty theatre, each character exposes every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives to do what they’ve always dreamed of – dance.
A Chorus Line is based on the book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, with music from beloved American composer Marvin Hamlisch, who passed away earlier this month. Theatergoers will enjoy famed hits like “What I Did for Love” and “One.”
Don’t miss the chance to see this singular sensation on a local stage! Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7pm, last Saturday at 5pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $44 for adults and $34 for youth, 17 and under. This show contains adult content and is not suitable for children.
The Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre is one of the 10 largest active community theaters in the United States and has been a vital part of the city’s cultural landscape for 95 years. For more information about the largest community theater in Indiana, go to http://www.civictheatre.org/
