Volunteer Fame presented by Altona City Theatre

at Altona City Theatre Victoria

It is nothing short of a global phenomenon. First came the hit motion picture, then the long-running television series. And if the recent smash-hit West End production is any indication, FAME – THE MUSICAL is indeed “gonna live forever”.

Director: Krystal Holzer
Musical Director: Jaxson McLennan
Choreographer: Xavier McGettigan
Producer: Daniel Treloar
Vocal Coach: Ashley Craven

Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street, FAME – THE MUSICAL is a bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work. With candour, humour and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today: issues of prejudice, identity, self-worth, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance.

The narrative FAME follows is unquestionably reflective of the lives of our potential cast. As fans of the show will recall, FAME highlights the hard work and determination existing within young people who are unwaveringly committed to developing their talents and making a difference through their passion for the performing arts. This means that our potential cast will be able to connect to their characters on a much deeper level, bringing a sense of truth and honesty to their performance.

The production team is looking for an energetic cast of approx. 30 to don the Altona Theatre stage this October. It is their hope that this group of performers will be just as eager to emphasise to the public the sheer determination, hardship, sacrifice, creativity and above all else ‘hard work’ that young performers all over the world put into developing their art and sense of self.
