The story of Chorus Line takes the audience on a heart-rending, nail-biting roller-coaster of emotions as a group of potential performers are put through a vigorous series of dance numbers and their numbers are gradually reduced to the sixteen from whom the director, Zach, must make his final choice. Instead of making them read a short audition, Zach asks, each hopeful to give a personal history of how they came to be in show business and what their hopes, and inspirations are. By the end the audience can identify with each performer and understand why they have endured a life filled with rejection, injury, pain and heartache to be involved with what is, to them, the glamorous world of musical theatre. The show finishes when the successful few joining together to perform the stunning dance finale showing exactly the talent required to make up that usually unappreciated essential of every successful show.
