Default movieclip chain/propagation, need help

I am trying to get a visual volume control type effect with movieclip boxes and clicking. So far I can do it, but the code is probably not optimal. I am trying to write it so I can include more or less movieclips in the future without rewriting all the code every time. Is there a better way to do this?

ActionScript Code:
var mc:MovieClip = new MovieClip(); mc.graphics.beginFill(0xFF0000); mc.graphics.drawRect(60, 20, 100, 80); mc.graphics.endFill(); mc.label = "mc" addChild(mc); var mc1:MovieClip = new MovieClip(); mc1.graphics.beginFill(0xCCFF00); mc1.graphics.drawRect(60, 120, 100, 80); mc1.graphics.endFill(); mc1.label = "mc1" mc.addChild(mc1); var mc2:MovieClip = new MovieClip(); mc2.graphics.beginFill(0x66CC66); mc2.graphics.drawRect(60, 220, 100, 80); mc2.graphics.endFill(); mc2.label = "mc2" mc1.addChild(mc2); var mc3:MovieClip = new MovieClip(); mc3.graphics.beginFill(0x63B8FF); mc3.graphics.drawRect(60, 320, 100, 80); mc3.graphics.endFill(); mc3.label = "mc3" mc2.addChild(mc3); mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mc_clicked); mc1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mc_clicked); mc2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mc_clicked); mc3.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mc_clicked); function mc_clicked(event:MouseEvent):void {     mc.alpha = 1     mc1.alpha = 1     mc2.alpha = 1     mc3.alpha = 1         if(event.target.alpha < 1){         event.target.alpha = 1;     }else{         event.target.alpha = .4;     } }

ActionScript Code:
var marr:Array=new Array for (var i:int=0;i<5;i++){ var mc:MovieClip = new MovieClip(); mc.graphics.beginFill(0x66CC66); mc.graphics.drawRect(60, 20+i*100, 100, 80); mc.graphics.endFill(); mc.label = "mc"+i addChild(mc); mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, mc_clicked); mc.addEventListener("otherclicked",revertcolor); marr.push(mc) } function mc_clicked(event:MouseEvent):void { event.target.dispatchEvent(new Event("otherclicked")) event.target.alpha = .4; } function revertcolor(e:Event):void{ e.target.alpha =1 }
something like this?

Thanks, that's sort of what I was looking for, except that the squares should only fade in sequence, depending on where you click, and not individually.
