The 1980s comes to Amityville this weekend as the Edmund W. Miles Middle School Drama Club will perform “Fame Junior.” The show is set at a performing arts high school in New York City and follows the journeys of student actors, dancers and musicians throughout their four years.

The cast and stage crew consists of approximately 30 students. Lead actors include Wilnori Bouzy as Carmen Diaz, Aniyah Law as Serena Katz, Javier Rodriguez as Nick Piazza and Ashley Diaz as Schlomo Metzenbaum.   

There are several musical numbers including “Hard Work,” “There She Goes/Fame” and “Bring on Tomorrow.” Director Shannon McCann and Assistant Director Carolyn Mejia say the show has a great message about the importance of the arts in education.

Show times for “Fame Junior” are Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the middle school gymnasium. Tickets are $5 at the door.
