Herald Express - - Entertainment Extra -

ATV star, a soul leg­end and one of the Bri­tish stage’s finest singers will be among the cast of Fame the Mu­si­cal when it comes to Torquay’s Princess Theatre next year.

Mica Paris, right, and Fame The Mu­si­cal is pre­sented by Sel­ladoor Pro­duc­tions which has re­cently toured with of Footloose, Av­enue Q, Lit­tle Shop of Hor­rors and Flash­dance – The Mu­si­cal.

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.
