A week-long boot camp for young singers, actors and dancers will culminate on Saturday with two shows at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way).

Some 23 musical theatre teens part of the Theatrix Youtheatre intensive will put on Fame Jr. at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Directed by Deb Solberg and chorographed by Nicole Roberge — the drama teacher at Riverside secondary in Port Coquitlam — the production follows a group of “triple threat” students at New York City’s High School For the Performing Arts, from 1980-’84.
