The following is from a news release provided by CORE Theatrics.
CORE Theatrics proudly presents FAME Jr. featuring a cast of students from area schools, including Sara Anderson of Kirkland, Feb. 28 through March 3 at the Lake Washington High School Performing Arts Center in Kirkland.
"Make sure you come see Fame Jr.," said Strande. It’s going to be fantastic!"
FAME Jr. is set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984). FAME Jr. 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.
With its topical subject manner, singers, dancers and instrumentalists and high-energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song), FAME Jr. is an ideal musical for young performers.
FAME Jr. is a PG show recommended for ages 8 and up. FAME Jr. is directed by Leslie Connor, musically directed by Blake Saunders, and choreographed by Sheri Lewis.
Show dates and times: Thursday Feb 28, Friday March 1, Saturday March 2 at 7 p.m. and Sunday March 3 at 2 p.m.
