‘Fame’ rehearsals to begin soon

By: By Bruce Caldwell - Contributing columnist

Angela Martin is directing “Fame” and had 50 folks show up over two nights this week for auditions. She will probably double cast and will let us know next week who got parts and when rehearsals will begin.

“Fame” is a show based on the lives of multicultural, energetic youngsters as they gather to audition to study at New York City’s “High School for the Performing Arts”. It began as a 1980 movie by the same name then was adapted for television where it was popular for about 6 years before being adapted for a stage performance which is what you will witness on the big stage of the Sampson Community Theater beginning on April 20. With a show highlighting the singing and dancing of youngsters you will want to get your tickets early at Inkspot or Matthew’s Gifts.

Kathy Day has been cast in the Thalian Association’s production of “Oliver” which will be performed on Feb. 9-18 in Wilmington. Way to go Kathy.

Thoughts until next week

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; It is something you design for the present.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart….Helen Keller

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible”!
