Show that lives for­ever...

Bangor Mail - - YOUR GUIDE -

FAME – The Mu­si­cal is tour­ing the UK this year in a stun­ning new 30th An­niver­sary tour that will star Keith Jack (Any Dream Will Do, Joseph and the Amaz­ing Tech­ni­colour Dream­coat), Mica Paris (Love Me Ten­der, Chicago, Mama I Want To Sing) and Jorgie Porter (Hol­lyoaks, Danc­ing On Ice).

With seven West End runs since open­ing in Mi­ami in 1988, Fame con­tin­ues to be one of the bes- loved mu­si­cals across the world.

Based on the 1980 phe­nom­e­nal pop cul­ture film, Fame – The Mu­si­cal 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.

Pre­sented by Sel­ladoor World­wide, the pro­duc­ers of Foot­loose, Av­enue Q, Lit­tle Shop of Hor­rors and Flash­dance – The Mu­si­cal, with Adam Paulden and Dan Looney, di­rected and chore­ographed by Nick Win­ston, with de­sign by Mor­gan Large.

Fea­tur­ing the Os­car-win­ning ti­tle song and a cast of out­stand­ing dancers, singers, mu­si­cians and rap­pers as they trans­form from star-struck pupils to su­per­stars, Fame – The Mu­si­cal will in­deed live for­ever.
