The cast of “Fame” the musical has many members from our local high schools.

Most of the cast has performed on our big stage before but there is a handful that are facing live audiences for the first time. Rehearsals are the way one gets rid of the fear of performing and when doing a scene over and over gives the actor confidence he or she will not fail. The veteran members are the standards by which the new comers eventually become familiar with their stage presence and before you know it have become veterans themselves. Make your plans to attend “Fame, the Musical” and you will be hard pressed to pick out the new comers from the veterans because they are all having fun.

“Fame” is being sponsored by Performance Dodge & Ford and the Sampson Arts Council. Tickets may be purchased now at Inkspot and Matthew’s Gifts.

Thoughts until next week:

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.

Friends are the siblings God never gave us.
