“WE’RE GONNA LIVE FOREVER!”

The hit movies and television franchise comes to exuberant life in this 90 minute version featuring a large cast of young actors, singers and dancers!

 Set in the early 1980s in New York City’s celebrated High School for Performing Arts, FAME JR. is the bittersweet and inspiring story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic hard work.

 FAME JR. explores themes that confront many young people today and features many beloved songs from the hit movie and television series, including “Hard Work,” “Bring On Tomorrow,” “I Want to Make Magic,” and, of course, “FAME!”
