One of musical theater’s most beloved shows gets the Theatre in the Park treatment with performances tonight and tomorrow night. “A Chorus Line” centers on the grueling audition process behind the scenes of a Broadway production, but you can just sit back and enjoy iconic numbers such as “I Hope I Get It” and “What I Did for Love.”

Mills Record Company has a seriously cool new location. To celebrate the move, the Westport music store is bringing in 5,000 used arrivals starting today as well as an additional 1,000 each weekend in July. The store warming continues with music from Real Adults, Thunderclaps, ConductorWilliams & Weaver and Not a Planet start at 7 p.m.

Newport Grill is getting crafty. At the restaurant’s rooftop bar, The Port, judge four craft cocktails prepared by Newport Grill, Pinstripes, Coco Bolos and Ya Ya’s.

Power Life Yoga KC is inviting Kansas Citians to a free 60-minute all levels class at Kansas City Bier Company at 11 a.m., after which participants can enjoy some quality drinking time.
