Area kids perform Fame! Jr.

After weeks of rehearsal, a group of young artists are ready to show off their talents.

Students from the La Crosse school district performed ‘Fame Jr.’, based off of the 1980 classic musical.

The kids spent their summer mornings running through lines and rehearsing songs.

“The arts really bring people together. I love how we have students from all over the city. Both high schools all three middle schools plus charter schools. So they get to know kids from other schools,” Vocal Music Teacher Mary Stutesman said.

Sunday was the final show and a portion of the proceeds will fund a summer theatre scholarship for graduating area high school seniors.
