Everyone should bring a headshot and a resume to the audition."Right here" is the School of Performing Arts in New York City, and the first problem for the young people eager to start paying their dues in pursuit of fame in the performing arts is to get accepted. These applicants have nothing in common but a compelling dream and each pursues it in a special way just as each must deal with the special problems of their various lives. Like the School of Performing Arts, this play goes to the essence of young people and of theatre. "Word has begun to spread about our great musical youth ensemble program, and now we've been getting requests to add plays to our mix - shows without the focus on singing and dancing," says Education Manager and Director Tracy Whiteside of St. Charles. "It's a drama based on the screenplay with little singing and dancing, so teens can really work on their dramatic side." The Fame summer play cast will present free performances for the public on the Mainstage at Pheasant Run on Friday, August 20 at 7pm and Saturday, August 21 at 2pm. The Noble Fool Performing Arts Academy is a non-profit organization. The academy features some of the Chicago area's most respected teachers, directors, actors and musicians.
