SOUTHBRIDGE — For Southbridge native Matt Anctil, the chance of a lifetime means becoming a woman.

A grumpy, cynical one at that.

Since about age 5, Anctil, now 24, has been pursuing his dream as a dancer, in a local studio, at high school, in Boston and now in the Big Apple. Over the last few years, he said, much of his time has been focused on casting calls wrapped around continued training, small parts, and a regular two-month stint with the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall.

Last summer, one of those calls gave him a chance to try out for the part of Angelique in a stripped-down version of the Broadway musical "La Cage aux Folles." Fortunately, several of his friends were there, so he could borrow a pair of high heels.
