"Fame" to shine spotlight on heroin abuse
TOLEDO (13abc Action News) - The heroin epidemic is about to take center stage.
"Fame," the musical written in the 1980s will be put on by teenagers with the Toledo Repertoire Theatre's "Young Rep."
They're partnering with the Lucas County Drug Abuse Response Team, or D.A.R.T., to talk about heroin abuse.
One of the characters in the show dies from an overdose.
Officers with D.A.R.T. will be on hand for a Q&A session after the musical Saturday night.
Every evening, The Rep will collect donations for D.A.R.T. and have information about combating heroin use in our community.
"To partner with DART, we were kind of looking to do a community outreach, and we thought that would be perfect with the heroin epidemic that's been going on in Toledo," explains Vicki Monhollen, director of The Young Rep's production of "Fame."
Actors ages 14 through 19 will present "Fame" four nights in a row, Thursday, July 14th through Sunday, July 17th at The Rep.
Tickets are $12.00 for adults, $8.00 for children 13 and under.
