Mainland Regional High School

LINWOOD — The end of the semester for students in the Mainland Regional High School musical theater and dance class always brings with it a treat for the community in the form of a full-scale stage production.

Under the direction of teachers Judy Cline and Clare Eger, this class will present the musical "Fame Jr."

Set in the 1980s at New York High School of the Performing Arts, the story follows students struggling with the grueling commitment to artistic and academic work required along the way to finding their own fame. 

The show features the music, athletic dance numbers and big hair characteristic of the period.

Cline said there are about 46 students involved in the production. They work on every aspect of bringing a show to the stage over the course of the semester.

There will be four performances, 6 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 17 and 18 in the auditorium of Mainland Regional High School, 1301 Oak Ave.

Admission is free. Donations support the musical theater and dance program.
