Under the director of Angela Martin, ‘Fame’ rehearsals are underway and the show opens April 20. -

The parents of the cast of “Fame” will know where their children are for the next month or so because they will be at the Sampson Community Theater learning lyrics to songs and to dance to Director Angela Martin’s choreography.

This show is essentially a showcase for the talent we have in our midst and we are proud to bring it to our audiences with the help of Performance Automotive proudly sponsoring this event. The cast list is posted on the theater’s facebook page and includes understudys. Tickets may be purchased at Inkspot and at Matthew’s Gifts.

Tom Wilbur has obtained the rights for “Blithe Spirit”, a comedy from the pen of playwright Noel Coward but you will have to wait until Oct. 19 to see this classic that was first performed in the 1940s.
