Plymkids are back at Barbican Theatre this November with theirproduction of Fame JR

Following the international acclaim of the hit motion picture, television series and stage show, Fame JR. is nothing short of a global phenomenon.  Fame JR. features a high-energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song) and a touching coming-of-age story.

Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s, Fame JR. is the bittersweet, but ultimately inspiring, story of a diverse group of students who 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.

Featuring the talented actors and dancers from the Plymkids middle groups ages 10-14.


Wed 6 Nov 7:30pm
