FAME JR.will begin Monday, July 15 and takes place Mondays and Wednesday evenings from 6pm till 8:30pm for 9 weeks. Then performers showcase what they have learned with 3 performances on September 13, 14 & 15.
The BAS Junior Theatre Workshop of "Fame Jr" begins July 15th and over the course of 9 weeks, instructs young performers ages 7 to 17 years in the basics of music, dance and acting. Director Stacey Loew & Music Director Jessika Speer are excited about this production choice and hope you and your children will be too.
This musical adaptation based on the hit movie of the same name, features a high-energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song) and a touching coming-of-age story.
Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts, FAME JR. is the bittersweet, but ultimately inspiring, story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work.
Among them is the fame-obsessed Carmen, the ambitious actress Serena, the wisecracking comedian/bad boy Joe, the quiet violinist Schlomo, the "talented but dyslexic" dancer Tyrone, the determined actor Nick, the overweight dancer Mabel, and the serious dancer, Iris, from a poor family. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today. FAME JR’s topical subject matter and a cast that can include plenty of singers, dancers and instrumentalists, (yes, BAS welcomes young musicians,) is an ideal musical for aspiring artists and performers. We hope to see you in 2 weeks!
Tuition and materials remain the same low price of $150.00 and $20.00 for materials, totaling $170.00.
