From the hit motion pictures, television series, and international stage success, FAME is nothing short of a global phenomenon.  

Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984), FAME - THE MUSICAL is bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they 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: issues of prejudice, identity, self-worth, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance. 

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 - THE MUSICAL is an ideal musical for high schools, colleges or any theatre with young performers or audiences.
