Chicago Plans for a 'Fame' School

News   Chicago Plans for a 'Fame' School
 
CHICAGO--Plans are afoot for Chicago to finally establish a public high school for the performing arts of the Fame persuasion. The city already has a privately-run Academy for the Arts, but the Chicago Public School system has made no such public investment in young performers. Coordinating the search for the school are Dr. Arlene Crewdson of Truman College (artistic director of Pegasus Players) and producer Mick Leavitt of Fox Theatricals. Details as they develop.
