HARRIS CENTER PRESENTS
FAME - THE MUSICAL
"LIGHT UP THE SKY LIKE A FLAME!"
Friday, January 13 - Sunday, January 15, 2017
It began as an Academy Award-winning film, then an Emmy-winning TV series and then on to the stage as riveting musical theatre—all conceived and developed by David De Silva. FAME—THE MUSICAL is the monumentally popular tale of young artists studying dance, music and theatre while attending the New York High School of the Performing Arts. For some, the pressures of a life on stage are too much; for others, the struggles are many and the triumphs are savory sweet. The last American tour was in 2003 and, as an American classic, it has endured remarkably well. After all—as the song sings so exuberantly— “I’m gonna live forever; Baby remember my name!”
Note: Fame, The Musical contains some urban street language and therefore the show is not recommended for children under the age of 13. The show touches on many important social issues that are reflective of real life experiences in an urban environment and, to be artistically accurate, the musical presents these in the appropriate context.Read Playbill
