‘Fame’

Maine State Music Theatre is a thoroughly professional company, and one of its missions is to provide a venue and training opportunities for aspiring young people interested in entering the profession. That’s one principal purpose of MSMT’s long-running intern program, which showcases the talents of its performing members on selected Mondays during the season.

The first offering is June 15, when the company will produce “Fame: The Musical,” a stage adaptation of the 1980 movie about students of the famous New York High School of the Performing Arts. “Fame: The Musical” debuted in 1988 and has become one of the most frequently produced shows in the world.

“Fame” follows the final class of the high school, from audition and admission in 1980 to graduation four years later. All the struggles, fears and triumphs are depicted with razor-sharp focus as the hopeful young artists navigate the worlds of music, drama and dance.

The cast of 15 includes seven Maine actors, led by Falmouth’s Alex Cohen in the starring role. At the helm is Curt Dale Clark, who is now in his second full season as the artistic director of the venerable Brunswick company.

“This production is so full of heart and reckless abandon that I feel sorry for anyone who misses it,” enthused Clark. “The kids pour their heart and soul into each and every moment.”

Maine State Music Theatre presents “Fame: The Musical” for one performance only: June 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Pickard Theater on the Bowdoin College campus in Brunswick. Call 725-8769 or visit msmt.org.
