Fairmont Theater Department to Present "The Unprincess"

The Kettering Fairmont High School Theatre Department will present the 2014 Children's Play, "The Unprincess," on Saturday, April 26th, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

When the immature and power-hungry Princess Cecily drops a dirty shoe into the water bucket of the heroine, Maggie, she discovers the stark contrast between the pampered life of the royals and the powerless and poor lives of the villagers of Forlorn. This charming story by Edith Weiss is full of twists and turns and a wonderful life lesson, complete with a happy ending.

Fairmont Media Students Create Historic Radio Shows

Students in Fairmont's Interactive Media Tech Prep program have been involved in an exciting project this year through the Victoria Theater Association, whereby they created radio shows that explore many of the social issues of the 1950s.

The project, Radio Waves: Race, Rhythm & Rock ‘N’ Roll, spotlights the power of radio as an instrument for social change. Working with several community partners, Radio Waves uses the Broadway tour of MEMPHIS THE MUSICAL as a starting point to explore the rise of race music on the radio waves in the 1950s and its influence on rhythm and blues, rock and roll, funk, and ultimately, the Civil Rights Movement in the Miami Valley.
