Free Dance Workshop at Crest Theatre


The Crest Theatre and MNM Productions announced that it will host free dance workshops in July for performers interested in being cast in an upcoming production of the landmark musical “A Chorus Line,” which will kick-off the 25th anniversary season of the Delray Beach Center for the Arts. “A Chorus Line” is the sixth longest-running show in Broadway history, with music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante. Centered on 17 Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line, the musical is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition for a musical. The award-winning show provides a glimpse into the personalities of both the performers and the choreographer as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers. The show is being directed by Kimberly Dawn Smith, who appeared in “A Chorus Line” on Broadway and is one of only a handful of choreographers personally entrusted by director choreographer Michael Bennett to carry on his original vision. Smith will also be conducting the free dance workshops, while Evan Farrar is serving as musical director for the production, which is scheduled to run for 12 performances December 5-14th. The workshops will take place on Sunday and Monday evenings, July 13-14, 20-21 & 27-28, from 6-10 p.m. at the Crest Theatre off Swinton Ave. in Delray Beach.
