Area students teaming up for stage performance of ‘Fame’

To the Editor:

— Something special is happening at the Cumberland Theatre but you only have until March 17 to see it.

Students from seven local schools and some who are home schooled are all bonding on stage, singing, dancing and making life-long friendships. You won’t find any school rivalries there! What could cause this to happen, you ask?

The Cumberland Theatre Teens and Mr. Bob Thompson who began this venture last year with the musical “Aida,” now brings us “Fame.” “Fame” was a popular movie, Broadway show and TV series in the 1980’s which is still relevant to this day.

Please show your support for these talented teenagers, ages 13 to 19 by allowing them to entertain you. With a cast of nearly 40 and accompanied by live band, they will inspire you with their exuberance and enthusiasm. These are students from Fort Hill, Allegany, Bishop Walsh, Frankfort, Mountain Ridge, Allegany College of Maryland and Potomac State College, and some are home-schooled.

Final shows are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door or you may call the theatre at 301-759-4990 for reservations.
