Broadway Junior Version
The pop-culture phenomenon about the legendary New York High School of the Performing Arts lives forever. (60 MINUTE VERSION FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS)
Fresh on the heels of the hit motion pictures, television series, and
international stage success of FAME –
nothing short of a global phenomenon – comes FAME
Set during the last years of New
York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th
Street in 1980-1984, before its merger with LaGuardia High School,
FAME JR. is the bittersweet but ultimately
inspiring story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years
of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor, and insight,
the show explores the issues that confront many young people today.
With its topical subject manner, multi-ethnic cast of actors, singers,
dancers and instrumentalists and high-energy, contemporary pop score
(which includes the hit title song), FAME
JR. is an ideal musical for young performers.
