Summer Musical Theatre Experience: Fame - The Musical
August 2, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am| $25
The FSCJ Artist Series, sponsored by Chase and The Nathan H. Wilson Center for the Arts are proud to present the 9th Annual High School Summer Musical Theatre Experience (SMTE)!
This program provides theatre opportunities to 7th-12th graders in the First Coast area and allows them to work hands-on with some of the highest recognized local and regional theatre professionals.
More than 80 student performers and technicians are training with professional theatre artists in preparation for the production of FAME - THE MUSICAL.
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 the 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.
