Fame Jr – The Musical

July 30, 2012  |  Posted by: Kathy Tyner

Thursday, August 2nd, talented actors, singers and dancers will burst on to the stage for Fame Jr. Directed by Terri Ferguson, KD Studio’s Imagination Players opens the doors for the explosive first performance at the KD Studio Theatre/Trinity River Arts Center (TRAC).

Fame Jr. is about real people – desperately trying to be the best even though sometimes life gets in the way. The hit songs ‘Fame’, ‘Bring on Tomorrow’, and many more great songs are in the musical. Audiences will experience the stage version of this gutsy, energetic, and exciting show. Pumping rock and pop rhythms fuse with beautiful love ballads. Dance fuses with action. Ballet, drama and music all come together in a myriad of colorful images in an explosion of youthful energy. Fame Jr. is the original ‘Got Talent’ show!

One of the best-loved musicals of all time, Fame Jr. follows the students at New York’s School of the Performing Arts through their tough, four-year course. We see them coming to terms with life and relationships: we see those who persevere, who are resilient – and those who are not. Above all, we see them growing and striving for excellence – to be the best actor, singer, dancer or musician that they can be.

Pulsating choreography, stunning sets, costumes and lighting all under the highly popular, state of the art KD Studio Theatre/ TRAC, ensure that Fame Jr. is the real deal.

Fame Jr. was conceived and developed by David De Silva, with music by Steve Margoshes, lyrics by Jacques Levy and book by Jose Fernandez. The play is a based on the 1980 movie about students in New York City’s High School of the Performing Arts.

Lynn Ambrose, Producer and Musical Director of Fame Jr. said:

“Fame is one of the most successful musicals of all time, and we are thrilled to bring it to Imagination Players. Those who have seen our recent shows like Willy Wonka Jr, Into the Woods Jr., and Guys and Dolls Jr.know we work hard to present excellent live entertainment for our audiences. We’ve been proving ‘Dallas’ Got Talent’ successfully and we have a brilliant cast for Fame Jr. whose energy has to be seen to be believed. We can’t wait for Dallas to experience Fame; it really is the best night out for all the family.”

The teen cast will be led by choreographer Stephanie Butler.

“This is the biggest singing/dancing show Imagination Players has produced over the past few years and we hope the local community will continue to support its very own talented local theatre company,” Ms Butler said.

A show full of excellent toe-tapping music and beautiful singing is led by musical director Lynn Ambrose with lots of vibrant dancing and entertainment assured.
