“Fame” The Musical

Bring the entire family to see the Off Broadway hit show “Fame The Musical” July 27-August 5 at the Drama Group at the Milford Studio Theatre in Chicago Heights and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!


An unmistakable title from the unforgettable film and television franchise, “Fame The Musical” inspired generations to fight for fame and light up the sky like a flame! Conceived and developed by David De Silva – now known affectionately to the planet as “Father Fame” – this high-octane musical features Academy Award-winning title song and a host of other catchy pop numbers. The show follows the final class of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts from their admission to their graduation. All the struggles, fears and triumphs – from prejudice to substance abuse – are depicted with razor-sharp focus as the young artists navigate the worlds of music, drama and dance.


“Fame The Musical” plays every night of every week somewhere in the world. “Fame” started out as a 1980 hit film, loosely based on the lives of art students at the Brooklyn Academy of the Arts. It morphed into a six season TV series, then went on to musical land.
