The pop-culture phenomenon about the legendary New York High School of the Performing Arts lives forever.

An unmistakable title from the unforgettable film & television franchise, FAME - THE MUSICAL inspired generations to fight for fame and light up the sky like a flame! Conceived and developed by David De Silva - now known affectionately to the planet as "Father Fame," this high-octane musical features the Academy Award-winning title song.

The final class of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street is followed from its 1980 admission acceptance to 1984 graduation. All of the struggles, triumphs, and fears of students and teachers alike are depicted with razor-sharp wit and memorable tunes. From prejudice, self-worth, and sexuality to literacy, substance abuse, and identity, issues that comprise adolescent coming-of-age lay at the heart of this piece as the young artists navigate the worlds of music, drama, and dance.

An entire new generation has been made privy to the globally known Fame franchise because of this international hit. FAME - THE MUSICAL is both popular and relevant for over numerous generations of audiences. It's a must to produce, especially for a large and diverse mix of talent. Dancing, singing, acting, rapping, and musicianship are just a few of the fantastic featured art mediums in this thrilling stage play.
