Greenwood resident Benjamin Cournoyer to be part of chorus in ‘A Chorus Line’

January 31st, 2012 · Comments

Benjamin Cournoyer, who recently moved to Greenwood, will be a chorus member in Seattle Musical Theatre’s production of “A Chorus Line” at Magnuson Park from Feb. 10 – March 4.

A Chorus Line follows a group of desperate to work actor/dancers through their audition experience for a spot on the synchronized dance chorus of an upcoming Broadway production. Ironically, Director Zach uses the audition to mine each of their very unique personal events that shaped their lives as dancers.

This will be Cournoyer’s fourth production with SMT. His other credits include: Bob Cratchit in “Scrooge: The Musical” at Capital Playhouse; a pirate and a policeman in STAGEright’s production of “The Pirates of Penzance”; Ninian Edwards in “Lincoln in Love” at Village Theatre’s 2010 Festival of New Musicals; Woof in “Hair” at The Historic Everett Theatre; and Richard III at Freehold Theatre Lab/Studio.

Performances are Friday through Sunday, with one Thursday night show. Tickets are $35-$40 with special rates for seniors, students and group sales. Tickets can be purchased online, or by calling the box office at 206-363-2809.
