DAVID DE SILVA
David De Silva is known as "Father Fame." He conceived, developed and produced the MGM motion picture, Fame. The film received four Academy Award nominations, winning for Best Song. He was consulting producer on the television series which ran for six years on network television and in syndication, and was broadcast in 68 countries. Mr. De Silva conceived and developed Fame the Musical and he believes Fame will truly "live forever" in the theatre. It has been performed in almost every language in the world. Its youth oriented idealism of pursuing the performing arts in education will always be an inspiration to young people everywhere.
Fame Forever- Reunion and Rebirth, a sequel to Fame the Musical, has just been published by Music Theatre International.
To know oneself is a life long process. It helps us along the way if we recognize that Life is Theatre. There are many sides to the "character" we play in it. We are always making our "entrances" and "exits."
Through the study and the appreciation of the Arts, we become better able to project our true selves, discover our uniqueness, design our space and channel our spirit. Thus, giving more meaning to our lives.
