Fame – at last!

For readers of a certain age, the name ‘Fame’ conjures up images of a classic 1980s TV show featuring beautiful young people toiling away at the academy where ‘fame costs and right here is where you start paying – in sweat!’

Now the definitive 30th anniversary tour of ‘Fame the Musical’, starring Keith Jack (Any Dream Will Do, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), 80s pop star Mica Paris, and Jorgie Porter (Hollyoaks, Dancing on Ice), brings the phenomenal pop culture film to Shrewsbury. Follow the students of the New York 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’ is visiting Theatre Severn from Monday 28 January to Saturday 2 February, with tickets ranging from £20.50 to £45.50 – visit theatresevern.co.uk or call 01743 281281 for details.
