The NEXTWAVE program moves to the Main Stage!  "Fame" is nothing short of a global phenomenon!  First came the hit motion picture, then the long-running television series and another revamped film version in 2010.  Now the screen sensations hits the Civic stage with the NEXTWAVE Educational Program!  And if the recent smash-hit Broadway revival is any indication, "Fame" is indeed "gonna live forever."  Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street, "Fame: The Musical" is a bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of greuling artistic and academic work.  With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today: issues that confront many young people today: issues of prejudice, identity, self-worth, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance
