FAME

Music by STEVEN MARGOSHES

Lyrics by JACQUES LEVY

Book by JOSE FERNANDEZ

Based on a concept by David DeSilva

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LTD. on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL of NEW YORK.

Young men and women audition for coveted spots at the New York High School of Performing Arts. Those who make the cut discover that it takes a lot of hard work to become a star and sometimes difficult decisions have to be made. The youngsters grapple with heavy issues such as homosexuality, abortion, attempted suicide and illiteracy. On top of their unique struggles, the students must deal with the mundane pressures of adolescence like homework, heartbreak and rejection.

At the 53rd Academy Awards, the film received a total of six Oscar nominations, including Best Original ScreenplayBest Film Editing and Best Sound.

Fame was the last musical film to be produced by MGM, before the studio merged with United Artists in 1981.
