David De Silva – the creator of Fame and known as ‘Father Fame’ – says of this anniversary production: “What makes a musical ‘a classic’ or a ‘masterpiece’? It takes time. It passes from one generation to the next. It translates from one language to many.
“It entertains an audience with both laughter and tears.
“It inspires youth with passion and parents with nostalgia. The brilliantly directed and choreographed 30th anniversary Fame UK production of the show by Nick Winston is the best I’ve ever seen.”
With an Oscar-winning title song and a cast of outstanding dancers, singers, musicians and rappers transform from star-struck pupils to superstars.
The production is at the Princess Theatre from July 1-6.
