Timberline wows with Fame: The Musical

Opening night of Fame: The Musical by Timberline Musical Theatre had the audience laughing, crying and singing along.

The musical follows the highs and lows of the final class of the High School for the Performing Arts in New York City from 1980 to 1984.

“Even though Fame: The Musical is set in the early 80s, the struggles remain the same for today’s teenagers: self-confidence, drugs, peer/family pressure, and striving for success and happiness,” said Céline Ouellette, director.

The show continues with performances this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
