The Grand Opera House Hosts Contest

The Grand Opera House presents the nationally-touring production of FAME Oct. 2nd-3rd, 2016 and the production company has announced an opportunity of a lifetime for our young actors.
Four “student” winners will be chosen to appear live on stage with the talented, touring cast of FAME at both Macon performances. Interested high school and college students should submit a short video answering the question “Why I want to be in FAME.” Video submissions should be emailed to The Grand’s technical director Bob Mavity at [email protected] or visit our Facebook page and post using #MaconFame. Entry deadline is September 23 at 5 p.m.

Fame - The Musical is a full-throttle journey traversing the struggles, fears, and triumphs of young artists navigating the worlds of dance, music and theatre. Conceived from the unforgettable Academy Award-winning film and subsequent Emmy Award-Winning television series, this unmistakable title has been brilliantly transformed into riveting musical theatre.

Single tickets to the show will cost $71 in Area I and $62 in Area II, or $45 in the Boxes. For a complete schedule of upcoming performances, visit or call the Grand’s box office at (478) 301-5470.
