Razzamataz Theatre Schools Carlisle senior students will be 'on top of the charts' when they take to the stage this summer with their rendition of the musical Fame! JR.

Fame! Jr. is set during the last years of the 'Fame School', New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street.

The musical follows the bittersweet but inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work in order to achieve their dream of 'hitting the heights' and putting their 'name in lights.'

Principal Debbie Mitchell said: "The Razzamataz Carlisle students are exhibiting these same life skills and discipline through their process of staging Fame! JR. Rehearsals have started and we are always so proud of the dedication and passion our students show week in week out."

The shows will take place on Friday June 21 and Saturday June 22 at Harraby Theatre, Carlisle.
