Joining the crew is a fantastic opportunity to explore all of the little things that have to be coordinated to make a theatrical world come to life, and we would love to have you join our backstage team under the guidance of Elsa, our Stage Manager, and David, our Technical Director!

A Chorus Line:
Seventeen Broadway dancers audition to be a part of the chorus for a Broadway show. As the show progresses, each one exposes their individuality and opens up to the choreographer and to the audience about what brought them here. Cassie, an ex-star who needs a job, Kristine, who can’t sing, and Mike, a tap dancer, are just a few individuals who tell us about their lives as they learn the finale number.
