Musical Theater Performance Troupes
We're expanding our Musical Theater Program to include new classes and Performance Troupes in downtown Charleston! Queen Street Playhouse, home of The Footlight Players is located in downtown Charleston's historic French Quarter. No need to trek all the way out to Mount Pleasant anymore. FAME @ Footlight is on the peninsula now, too!

THEATER & DANCE CLASSES
At FAME, we offer foundational group Acting and Dance classes as a part of our Troupe Program. These classes are included with Troupe enrollment, or may also be taken separately. For non-Troupe members, each class is $85/month, and $70 for each additional class.
FAME Acting classes offer an outlet for students to explore theater in a way that promotes growth and confidence, so they can become better stage artists.
FAME Dance classes provide fundamental training in tap, jazz, and ballet to build confidence on and offstage.

All students must participate in placement auditions to join Troupe. These auditions give our Troupe directors an idea of where they will fit into our upcoming season. Students who are not available for the above audition date will be asked to provide a virtual audition. However, it should be noted that casting preference will be given to students at in-person auditions.
