Acting Up Children’s Theatre presents FAME

“You want fame? Well, fame costs. And right here is where you start paying.”

“Right here” is the School of Performing Arts in New York City, and the first problem for the hundreds of young people eager to start paying their dues in pursuit of fame in the performing arts is to get accepted. As the play begins, the school is in the midst of auditioning applicants. They’re every size, shape and attitude. They’re scared, they’re brave, they’re rich and they’re poor. They’ve got nothing in common but a compelling dream, and each pursues it in a special way just as each must deal with the special problems of their various lives.  The dramatic riches explored and developed in this play as the various students interact with each other and with their teachers – who must present a tough exterior but who care so very much, create an exciting theatrical tapestry in this useful and fulfilling play. Like the School of Performing Arts, this play goes to the essence of young people and of theatre. While this is a play and not a musical, there is some music and some dancing. The show includes high school students from all across Cabarrus County!
