Growing up and becoming the person you dream to be is never easy.
This year will be the 40th anniversary of the Broadway premiere of the show "A Chorus Line."
UNC theater group Pauper Players will be putting on their own production of "A Chorus Line" from Nov. 13 to 16.
This show will illustrate the challenges of putting everything into one's dreams and how far one is willing to go for those dreams.
Director and senior at University of North Carolina at Greensboro Jackson Cooper found it difficult to pinpoint only one thing the show touches on.
“[The characters] are asked by the director to tell their stories," Cooper said. "And it’s all just about these people, who are seemingly very different from one another, finding out through the course of the day and the audition that they are more similar than they thought.”
Senior Mariah Barksdale, the executive director for publicity and an actress in the production, said she felt that these individual characters and their stories are central to the story of the show.
“They backup the star, and they dance in the background, and they 'just dance,'" Barksdale said. "But they want to be forgettable."
But they are not.
