Where Kids Perform for Kids

Following the international acclaim of the hit motion picture, television series and stage show, Fame The Musical JR. is nothing short of a global phenomenon.  Fame JR. features a high energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song) and a touching coming-of-age story.

Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s, Fame JR. is the bittersweet, but ultimately inspiring, story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today.

BrightSide Theatre Youth Project is guided by the belief that involvement in arts programs increases the development in children on both an academic and social scale while building self-esteem.  The BrightSide Theatre Youth Project is designed to provide a professional and educational learning experience for grade school to high school students aged 8-18 interested in exploring musical theater.   In this program, children work directly with professional directors, musical directors, choreographers, designers, and artists to develop their own theatrical skills. Our staff has/currently works with professional theatres including, Paramount Arts Center, First Folio, Chicago Shakespeare, Broadway in Chicago, Drury Lane Oak Brook.
