CHORUS LINE SHIFTS TO PARRAMATTA: Riverside Theatres has announced the Australian premiere season of the much-anticipated Broadway smash A Chorus Line as part of its dazzling 2022 program. Darlinghurst Theatre Companys new production of the Tony Award-winning musical, which was originally slated to open last year, is now set to kick off at Riverside Theatres in Parramatta on 6 January. Previously postponed twice due to the pandemic, this new production of the legendary dance musical features choreography and direction Amy Campbell, whose credits include the Australian productions of Lin-Manuel Mirandas In The Heights and Hamilton.

Conceived and originally directed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line tells of the struggles Broadway performers go through to be seen, heard, recognised, and respected. Featuring the music of Marvin Hamlisch (including Dance Ten, Looks Three, What I Did for Love and One), A Chorus Line explores what it means to put everything on the line. Central Coasts Amy Campbell said she was overjoyed to be making her directorial debut with A Chorus Line at Riverside Theatres.

Sydney Festival is my favourite time of year, so to be a part of this years incredible line-up of shows and artists is a dream come true. I remember going to see my favourite dance shows as a kid at Riverside Theatres, and now I get to watch this new Australian production of A Chorus Line take to that amazing stage. It is a truly epic experience, Ms Campbell said.

A Chorus Line which opened on Broadway in 1975 and has won 10 Tony Awards, a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and countless international plaudits remains one of the most successful musicals of all time. Riverside Theatres, which is owned and operated by City of Parramatta Council, draws more than 180,000 patrons to up to 1000 performances and events every year.
