Shaun Pierre of Moscow, is performed in Wilkes University Theatre's production of A Chorus Line. He played the role of Mark.

This 1975 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning musical captures all the spirit and ambitious tension of dancers auditioning for the chorus line of a Broadway show.

A Chorus Line follows these stories of Broadway gypsies as they bare their souls and put their lives "on the line" as they audition for an unnamed Broadway musical. The musical focuses not just on the glamour of Broadway but on the heartbreak of being on stage.

The production is directed by Wilkes University Theatre's Joseph C. Dawson, associate dean and professor of theatre. Musical direction is provided by Ken McGraw, music theater director, and choreography by faculty of practice Lynne Mariani.
