The Royal Crown Players of Roslyn High School will be presenting the Pulitzer Prize-award winning musical A Chorus Line from March 7 through March 9 at the Roslyn High School auditorium.

Among the Broadway hopefuls are Cassie (Gina Casali), who has an unexpected connection with the director; Mike (Scott Feiner), who’s been tapping since he was kid; Bobby (Jonny Goldberg), Sheila (Melissa Goldstein), Judy (Emilia Bunich) and Maggie (Nicole Sweet), who are dealing with painful pasts; Val (Rachel Curtis), Bebe (Lindsay Wolfson) and Connie (Casey Landman), who struggle with the industry’s pursuit of youth and beauty; and a group of guys and gals trying to make their mark including vocally challenged Kristine (Elizabeth Berger), street-wise actor (Justin Tepper), innocent Mark (Ben Steinberg), insecure Greg (Adam Heitner), easy going Al (Trevor Cox) and enthusiastic Richie (Daveen Rim). Diana, who has a feisty personality, is portrayed by Erica Plaener and Josh Goldenberg portrays Paul, a confused, talented singer and dancer. Alanna Schaffer plays Lara, Zach’s assistant.
