An unmistakable title from the unforgettable film and television franchise, Fame The Musical, inspired generations to fight for fame and light up the sky like a flame! Now this global phenomenon has been adapted for younger performers with Fame JR.
Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts, 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, and a contemporary pop-score (which includes the hit song), Fame JR. is an ideal musical for young performers.
