FAME: The Musical
Hello, everybody! This is Jimi Wright, and boy has it been an exciting week! My school’s production of “Fame: The Musical” has entered tech week as of today (February 27th), and we’re all very excited to put on an amazing show. I’m playing Nick Piazza in the show. Since November, the cast has worked its way through a vigorous schedule of rehearsals. And now we’re in the final stage before we stand up and present a riveting and incredible show to you!
“Fame: The Musical” is a show set between the years of 1980-1984, following a group of young hopefuls who were accepted into the prestigious “Performing Arts School” in New York. Featuring excellent comic relief and humor, the play follows these high schoolers as they make their way through an education in the arts and struggle to keep their academics to an acceptable standard, they face the relatable challenges endured by teens and adults alike. Throughout the show, these young teens work to find themselves and fit in. The show tackles many controversial issues such as homosexuality, drug use, dropouts, and teenage romance. It’s an inspiring and naturally relatable show sure to keep the audience at the edge of their seat, if they’re not standing up and dancing with the music already.
The play will be held at Joseph A. Foran High School in Milford, CT, on the dates of 3/3 (7:00 PM ET) and 3/4 (2:00 PM and 7:00 PM ET). Tickets will cost either $10 or $12 at the door. I guarantee it will be beyond worth the expense!
