In a story about Bob Cuccioli over the weekend, I mentioned that Westchester audiences might know him from his work at the “now-defunct” White Plains Performing Arts Center. In the context of the story, that is accurate: The producing team and the regional Equity season in which Cuccioli played Don Quixote and King Arthur are no more.
But the theater lives on, with a series of one-night concerts and the work of Jeremy Quinn and his Conservatory Theatre for kids. This weekend, the Conservatory presents “A Chorus Line,” with performances Feb. 25 and 26 at 8 and Feb. 27 at 2.
Quinn and choreographer Linda Duci co-direct and Howard Kilik is musical director.
The cast includes: Jackie Alfenas, Sarah Bedrick, Ben del Valle, Donya Feizbakhsh, Katie Jo Flanagan, Marcus Franklin, Carly Glenn, Schuyler Ian Gordon, Maria Grispin, Christopher Guzman, Danny Hammond, Alex Imbrosci, Rob Keller, Shana Lin, David Melendez, Bongani Mzila, Adrian Nobile, April Nuovo, Chelsea Osborne, Holly Petre, Mikie Sakanaka, Nicholas Sampogna, Jillian Sayegh, Natalie Seabolt, Kaila Shaw, William Socolof, Samantha Stiglianese, Kate Vaccaro.
Tickets for all performances — at the 410-seat theatre in downtown White Plains at the City Center — are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Call 914-328-1600 or go to www.wppac.com.
