A Chorus Line revolutionized American musical theatre when it debuted in 1976. The compilation of real stories from Broadway dancers who had never been given a voice before, captured the imaginations of the public and earned nine Tony Awards, seven Drama Desk Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Songs like One, What I Did For Love, and Music and the Mirror will forever be part of the American popular song library.
The ensemble cast features Erin Renee Baumrucker, Elizabeth Bushell, Sean Caron, Luis Del Valle, Emma Drazkowski, Trevor Hendrix, Ben Isabel, Lili Javorka, Khnemu Menu-Ra, Tyler Meyer, Marcela Ossa, Madelynn Oztas, Chandler Paskett, Ben Paynic, Madison Jaffe-Richter, Rae Robson, Sarah Sapperstein, Jason Sekili, Maddy Shilts, and Whitney Wolf.
The show is directed by MadKap Productions’ Managing Director Wayne Mell with musical direction by multiple Jeff winner Jeremy Ramey and choreography by Susan Pritzker. Lighting design is by Pat Henderson, costume design by Broadway World Award-winner Patty Halajian, and sound design by Chris Cook. Wendy Kaplan produces for MadKap Productions
A Chorus Line is a show that is life-changing for people in the audience the first time they see it. It’s one of those shows you can see over and over and it never gets old. Wayne Mell is a very accomplished director and the way he is educating the cast is going to result in some masterful performances.
MadKap is celebrating its 9th year at Skokie Theatre and is the recipient of the 2019 Artistic Excellence award from the Village of Skokie Fine Arts Commission.
I’m a big fan of Wayne Mell and Wendy Kaplan. The work they do with MadKap Proudctions and the Skokie Theatre is incredible. I have never walked away from a Skokie Theatre show disappointed.
The Skokie Theatre was originally built in 1912 and served as the local movie theatre for the people who lived in the Skokie area. It was renovated in 2006 and MadKap Productions took over management in 2014, turning it into a complete performing arts center.
