Last weekend saw the culmination of many months of rehearsals and preparations for 39 secondary students and The Arts staff with the performance of this year’s College musical Fame Jr.
Sell-out audiences on Friday and Saturday were entertained by the stories within New York’s High School of the Performing Arts in the early 1980’s. The cast was inspiringly costumed and hair-styled to reflect the era, and many audience members probably had their own teenage flashbacks.
Highlights of the show included the confident tones of Carmen (Andrea Little), the smooth sounds and moves of Joe (Troy Fullerton), the rap dancing of Tyrone (Jake Hoeksema), and the blossoming romance between Nick and Selena (Jordan Bull and Caitlin Lewis).
The Arts staff would like to acknowledge the commitment shown by the students and their families over the last two terms in order to produce such a quality show. The efforts of the backstage and front-of-house crew are also greatly appreciated as the show would not go on without them.
