Chicago Tap Theatre, under Artistic Director Mark Yonally, has announced the company and creatives for CHANGES, a science fiction tap dance story set to all-new arrangements of music by David Bowie and based on the original Chicago Tap Theatre production.
Directed by Harrison McEldowney with choreography by Yonally and musical arrangements and direction by Kurt Schweitz, the production features Kirsten Uttich, Jennifer Pfaff Yonally, Mark Yonally, Aimee Chase, Isaac Stauffer, Sarah Owens and Sara Anderson along with Guest Dancers Jenna, Jozefowski, Sarah LaVanway, Christopher Matthews and Anna Lynn Robbins.
The creative team includes Dustin Derry (lighting design), Emma Cullimore (costume design), Jimmy Jagos (set and prop design), Jacob Reich (sound design), and Sarah Lackner (stage manager)
“We had thought that we wouldn’t do CHANGES again,” said Yonally. “But after David Bowie’s passing, we wanted to pay our respects by presenting this work one last time. This version will retain many audience-favorite pieces from the previous iterations, along with new scenes, updated choreography, and vastly superior production values.”
