“Chorus Line” Kicks Off; 1 More Performance Added

Opening night for “A Chorus Line” is not until Friday.

But the Staples Players show has created such a buzz in town, they’ve already added an extra performance.

A 3 p.m. matinee on Saturday, March 23 joins shows set for this weekend and next; a matinee this Sunday, and a Thursday evening performance on March 21.

The extra date is vital. Ticket sales for the dance-and-music spectacular have been as hot as — well, for the original Broadway run.

Since 1958, Westporters have flocked to Players productions. Audiences include proud parents and classmates, sure, but also tons of alumni, parents of alums, families of future Players, and many others with no connection whatsoever to Staples. All appreciate professional-style shows — acting, dancing, singing, sets, costumes, lighting and the pit — right here in their hometown.

“A Chorus Line” will sell 7,000 tickets during its 2-week run.

As the added matinee indicates, they’re going fast.

(“A Chorus Line” performances are set for Friday and Saturday, March 15, 16, 22 and 23, at 7:30 p.m.; matinees Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 17 at 3 p.m., and Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. Click here for tickets, and more information.)

    I saw ‘A Chorus Line’ tonight. It is hard to believe that high school kids can be this good. The Staples Players are famous for their singing, but the dancing? Incredible! Congratulations to all who had a part in this amazing production. And thanks.
