The Music Theater Intensive at Laurel Mill Playhouse presents Fame! Jr. and a Kids’ Cabaret

Following the international acclaim of the hit motion picture, television series and stage show, Fame The Musical 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.

Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre, International. Performances run weekends from Friday August 2, 2019 through Sunday August 18, 2019 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22 for general admission. Admission for students (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $17. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the link below.

Auditions for Teen Performance Ensemble and Children’s Theater, Apr 8 & 10

Auditions for Teen Performance Ensemble and Children’s Theater, Apr 8 & 10

Auditions for:
Teen Performance Ensemble & Children’s Theater

Are you a teen, age 16 or older who loves to act, sing, and dance and wants hands-on experience performing in front of live audiences? Our Teen Performance Ensemble and Prince George’s Children’s Theater were designed just for you.

Since 1996, the Teen Performance Ensemble has provided on-the-job training in musical theater skills to aspiring actors of high school age. In 2000, Prince George’s Children’s Theatre was established to give more teen performers the opportunity to earn money during the summer, while enhancing their abilities in acting, singing, and dance.

These two theater companies present original, one-act musical plays, written by local playwrights and directed by theatrical professionals, to children enrolled in M-NCPPC’s Summer Playgrounds and Camps. Over 100 performances are scheduled through the summer months. Graduates of these two troupes have gone on to study at some of the premier drama departments in the nation. From there, they have become professional actors, radio personalities, playwrights and theatrical directors. Auditions are open in the Spring to any student 16 years of age or older. If selected, actors will earn an hourly wage while providing live entertainment for their younger peers and gaining valuable experience.

Teens, ages 16-19, who love acting, singing, and dancing, are invited to FREE auditions for summer jobs in the performing arts. Those selected will perform in a one-act, live musical production at M-NCPPC Summer Playgrounds and camps during June and July 2019. Attend the audition nearest your home. Prepare a one-minute monologue and an up-tempo song or dance. No appointment is necessary. For more information contact Performing Arts Specialist Christel Stevens at 301-446-3238.
