Pioneer Theatre Guild (PTG) presents FAME The Musical, the pop-culture phenomenon about the legendary New York High School of the Performing Arts.

Set in the 1980s, the story follows a talented group of students from admission to graduation as they navigate the world of music, theatre, and dance, with all its challenges and triumphs. This energetic musical features the Academy Award-winning title song, “FAME,” along with many other catchy pop numbers.

“I’m excited about FAME The Musical because it is my last show with PTG,” says Pioneer senior Ashanti Kenyatta Campbell, who is playing the role of Tyrone. “I am looking forward to the audience being blown away by the opening sequence.”
