A special preview event benefiting the Sacramento State Library is set for 7 p.m Thursday, Feb. 17. Desserts and beverages will be served prior to the 8 p.m. show.

Under the direction of professor Ed Brazo, who also choreographed the cast of nearly 40, the shows follows the trials of 17 dancers through the brutal competition to get a slot in a Broadway show.

In a homage to the show's original staging, Brazo has chosen to present the over-the-top finale "One" using creator/director Michael Bennett's classic choreography.

A Chorus Line audiences will be treated to what may be its last regional production for some time. While the show was a huge hit and played more than 6,000 performances in its years on Broadway, it is scheduled to be revived in New York in 2006. Sacramento State has one of the few opportunities to stage this amazing show before its Broadway return.

Tickets for regular performances are $15 general, $8 for students and seniors and are available from the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or Tickets.com. Tickets for the Library benefit show are $30 advance, $35 at the door, and available from the Friends of the Sacramento State Library at (916) 278-5954.

For more information, call (916) 278-6702. For media assistance, call public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
