"FAME," is a reinvention of the original Oscar®-winning film (Fame Movie) that spawned a globally successful, multi-faceted franchise, including hit television shows, stage shows and music.
As in the original 1980 film, the talented new cast is comprised of young, up-and-coming performers who will climb the steps of the High School for the Performing Arts to explore a wide variety of classic and contemporary artistic disciplines, including singing, acting, ballet, tap, jazz, modern dance, hip-hop, slam poetry, spoken word, traditional theatre, and cinema.
Fame follows a talented group of dancers, singers, actors and artists over four years at the New York City High School of Performing Arts, a diverse creative powerhouse where students from all walks of life are given the chance to live out their dreams and achieve real and lasting fame... the kind that comes only from talent, dedication and hard work.
In an incredibly competitive atmosphere, plagued by self-doubt, each student's passion will be put to the test. In additions to their artist goals, they have to deal with everything else that goes along with high school, a tumultuous time full of schoolwork, deep friendships, budding romance, and self-discovery.
As each student strives for his or her moment in the FAME spotlight, they'll discover who among them has the innate talent and necessary discipline to succeed. With the love and support of their friends and fellow artists, they'll find out who amongst them will achieve Fame...
