MEEKER I The Meeker High School Drama Club and International Thespian Society Troupe 1284 will present the Broadway Musical “FAME” in the Meeker High School auditorium Friday and Saturday evenings at 7 p.m. after opening their run with the first production on Wednesday night.
“FAME” is based on the popular 1970s television and motion picture series about a New York City high school for the performing arts. It follows the lives and career aspirations of the teen-aged students who follow various career tracks in music, dance, acting and similar pursuits.
The challenges of a performing arts career include strong competitions for leading roles and key positions in those career pursuits, the heartbreak of losing a coveted role or starring position and the joy and exultation of landing a key role.
The performance highlights the humor of the faculty members and students and the colorful personalities and emotions of the talented students who aspire to very competitive performing arts professions.
FAME tells the story of several students including fame-obsessed Carmen (played by Mariah Jensen), ambitious actress Serena (McKenna Kummer), wisecracking comedian Joe (Bruno Juarez), quiet saintly violinist Schlomo (J.C. Henderson) and “talented but dyslexic” dancer Trysha (Stephanie Joos), and other cast members.
Also part of the cast are Mabel (Ohana Mataia), Grace (Morgan Robb), Iris (Hailey Simonsen), Miss Esther (Aly Ridings), Miss Greta (Brittany Smith), Mrs. Myers (Jamie McLaughlin), Scheinkopf (Collin Keeler), Nick (Sam Baylie) Goodman (Layton Bair) and the Student Ensemble (Lisa Lombardi, Delenn Mobley, Kendra Nelsen, Kinzey Burke, Reese Pertile, Madeline Amack, Christian Gomez and Halle Ahrens). Director is Kim Kendall.
FAME is produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
The performance is also hilarious in highlighting the humor of the faculty members and students and the colorful personalities and emotions that accompany the gifted and talented students.
