Aug. 23-31: FAME
The Metropolitan Performing Arts Theater’s ensemble cast presents FAME today through August 31 at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton. The musical is set in a high school for the performing arts and follows a diverse group of students as they grind through four years of artistic and academic work. The characters deal with prejudice, issues of identity and self-worth, substance abuse, their budding sexualities, and other topics that continue to confront young people today.
