Westfield High School is the next stop for Pop Star, a nationally televised talent search that will make some lucky high school student the next American Idol. When the show's sleazy host and his put-upon assistant roll in with the cameras, the strain of competition pits friend against friend. Who will be chosen: Densie, the spoiled rich girl? Jessica, the Jewish rapper who is ashamed of her heritage? Chanel, an African-American whose white boyfriend is afraid to let people know they are in love? Before petty jealousies and racial tensions tear the school apart, the students realize that sticking together is more important than winning. Fast-paced and fun. Pop Star is propelled by an infectious pop rock score that includes 11 original songs.
Pop Star was originally produced by the Teen Theatre of the Jewish Community Center of Manhattan in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League in April 2003 and was directed by Sasha Nanus.
