CORE Theatrics proudly presents “FAME Jr.” featuring Woodinville students Ethan Yee, Kenzie Kovacs-Szabo, Lizzy Strande, and Shailey Harris.

Lizzy Strande says: “This is my third show with CORE Theatrics. Last summer, CORE produced ‘Aladdin Jr.’ where I was Abu the Monkey – and that was so much fun!  The staff at CORE works with each kid individually.  They bring out the best in us then integrate all of the unique talents into one amazing show.  Make sure you come see ‘Fame Jr.’  It’s going to be fantastic!”

FAME Jr. is set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984).

“FAME Jr.”  is the bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work.

With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today.

With its topical subject manner, singers, dancers and instrumentalists and high-energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song), “FAME Jr.” is an ideal musical for young performers.

“FAME Jr.” is a PG show recommended for ages 8 and up. It is directed by Leslie Connor, musically directed by Blake Saunders, and choreographed by Sheri Lewis.

Show dates and times:  Thursday Feb 28, Friday March 1, Saturday March 2 at 7 p.m. and Sunday March 3 at 2 p.m.
