Black Stars Rising: Students of Ghana International School Bring The Musical Fame To The National Theater

It seems like the Black Star nation has taken the Diddy pill because they just “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” in terms of showcasing the power of Ghana’s creativity. I am excited to see that as we head toward the 54th anniversary of Ghana’s Independence, we are resurrecting one of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah‘s main objectives of bringing Ghana to the global stage through our arts & culture.

On Friday March 25 and Saturday March 26, 2011, GIS students will bring to the stage an adaptation of FAME for the benefit of the Ghanaian audience.…Mrs. Gloria Payida, Vice-Principal of the Lower Secondary section at Ghana International School said, “This is the fourth year running that GIS has staged such a major musical at the National Theatre. Every year, we aim to get bigger and better, and the dream of making a musical production an entrenched item on the GIS annual calendar is gradually coming true.” READ MORE

Ghana is getting its “Glee” on as 80 students from Ghana International School prepare to dance, sing, & act their way into the heart of their fellow Ghanaians by living their dreams. The  students & faculty of GIS are diligently working together to bring the American musical “Fame”,made a globally popular cult classic by the great choreographer Debbie Allen who starred in both the film & hit TV  show.

The story of living out your dreams & paying the cost of making that dream come true is a globally relatable concept that captured the hearts & minds of the world. America along with the world just can’t get enough of “Fame” , which has been recaptured, remixed & remade on film &  stages all over world. Now the students of GIS are bringing it to Ghana’s famous National Theater with their own Black Star twist. More Vim & Black Star Power!
