Following the international acclaim of the hit motion picture, television series and stage show, Fame The Musical Jr. is nothing short of a global phenomenon. Fame Jr. features a high energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song) and a touching coming-of-age story that has been updated for younger audiences.
Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s, 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.
• 30 students ages 12 to 18 will be accepted into the Junior Company.
• Rehearsals and classes will begin Saturdays the weekend of October 21 then three-four times a week starting in December leading up to the public performances of their musical and the festival.
• The total cost for each participant is $500.00 to MTC plus the trip to the Junior Theatre Festival (which there will be fundraising opportunities and all ticket sales for public performances will go to the trip). Scholarships and payment plans are available.
We are seeking bright, talented young artists with a hunger to grow and learn from every experience. You must possess a strong voice, solid dance technique, and the ability to connect with an audience to tell the story.
