Fame

Fame the Musical

The definitive 30th anniversary tour of Fame starring Keith Jack (Any Dream Will DoJoseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), Mica Paris (Love Me TenderChicago) and Jorgie Porter(HollyoaksDancing On Ice).

Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film, Fame is the international smash hit sensation following the lives of students at New York’s High School For The Performing Arts as they navigate their way through the highs and lows, the romances and the heartbreaks and the ultimate elation of life. This bittersweet but uplifting triumph of a show explores the issues that confront many young people today: prejudice, identity, pride, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance.

Fame has seen seven West End runs since opening on Broadway in 1988 and continues to be one of the best loved musicals across the world.

Featuring the Oscar-winning title song and a cast of outstanding dancers, singers, musicians and actors as they transform from star struck pupils to superstars.

High adrenaline, fast paced. Blown away by the talent

Backstage Access

An unstoppable buzz of energy, music and fun

Surprisingly I had no idea what to expect and unsurprisingly neither did my twelve-year-old daughter but by the time we left she was skipping delight across the Meadows.
The story started with a general view of all the characters as they auditioned for the school and then honed in on certain individuals while never leaving out other characters.

It wasn’t a show with a star but one in which there were lots of people to identify with. The drama revolved around three couples and their problems – drugs, illiteracy and blindness to love. These problems rippled out and affected the staff and other students. By the time we reached the second half the pathos in the audience was high as they lived and breathed the story.

Mica Paris as Miss Shuman is worth a mention as the theatre erupted in applause after her solo. By the end of the show, everyone was standing.
It was a very entertaining and engaging show on many levels full of energy and interest.
