“Everyone is welcome to audition, but especially students in Dance or Theatre at ASU,” says JoAnn Tongret, Senior Lecturer in the Herberger College who will choreograph the LOT production. “There are major roles for pretty decent dancers or those who are good movers. You must be able to sing, but you don’t need to be fabulous,” she says.
Tongret will teach a Spring Semester workshop in conjunction with the production so cast members can get to know one another while developing their characters and experiencing a great deal of choreography. “The workshop is really a bonding experience,” notes Tongret. “The workshop is in keeping with the origins of A Chorus Line, which evolved from the workshop concept.” For more information on the workshop, which can be taken for credit, contact Tongret at 480-965-0071.
