Fame Jr. Coming to Ashland Theatre

News to Know
by Robin Steele-Thornhill


They took you on a journey to Agrabah to go on an epic adventure with Aladdin and that magical Genie. They made you remember your childhood when learning was fun with catchy songs of  School House Rock Live. Last summer they took you Into the Woods  for a not so traditional story about many of our favorite fairytale characters. What does the Historic Ashland Theatre have in store for audiences this summer?

Pull on your legwarmers and tease that hair out; Fame Jr. will have you singing along and dancing in the aisle as you remember all the things you loved about the 80’s! The Music! The Clothes! That Big Hair! The musical takes place during the final years of the High School of the Performing Arts in New York City. Fame Jr. follows a diverse cast of students through the gruelling 4 years at one of the toughest artistic programs in the country. There are the Dancers, Actors, and Musicians who each feel that their profession is “the hardest profession in the world”! With songs like the title hit “Fame”, “Mabels Prayer”, “Bring on Tomorrow”,  and “Hard Work” you get a small taste of the pressure that can be felt even by teenagers to seek success to find self worth and meaning in life.

The Historic Ashland Theatre will be presenting their summer youth musical Friday June 26th at 7pm, Saturday June 27th at 7pm, and Sunday June 28th at 2pm. Tickets will be $10 for Adults and $5 for Students and Senior Citizens. One of the most exciting parts of the youth musicals at the Ashland Theatre is that the entire cast, backstage crew, and tech crew (running lights and sound) are kids and teenagers! Our area is full of amazing talented kids onstage and off and The Historic Ashland Theatre is committed to helping each and every one of them find a way to shine! For a great night of entertainment right in our own backyard, come out and support local theatre and the youth in our community!
