About Fame

The definitive 30th anniversary tour of Fame starring Keith Jack (Any Dream Will Do, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), Mica Paris (Love Me Tender, Chicago) and Jorgie Porter (Hollyoaks, Dancing 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 the Musical 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. Fame will indeed live forever.

Age: 12+ Contains sexual, drug, mental health references and mild swearing

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fame are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
