This August LondonDanceCo Productions present Fame - The Musical in celebration of their 30th anniversary of the show.
With a over 100 cast members a full professional production team this summer The Leatherhead Theatre will light up the stage like a flame for 5 performances of pure theatrical magic.
Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film. Fame the Musical follows the highs and lows of the final class of New York City's illustrious High School for the Performing Arts from their first year in 1980 to their graduation in 1984.
It tells the story of several of the students, depicting their struggles, triumphs and tempestuous relationships with sincerity and dramatic effect.
We see their struggles with ambition, fame, and self-confidence through the eyes of students such as Carmen, the ambitious dancer obsessed with fame, serious actor Nick, Mabel a dancer who loves to eat but needs to watch that waistline, the shy & insecure ballet dancer Iris and the talented dancer Tyrone who struggles desperately with dyslexia.
The show does not shy away from complex issues, such as racial prejudice, drug abuse, and sexual exploitation, as the young performers explore the realities of striving for a career in show business. This is a smash hit show that has wow-ed audiences worldwide for years on tour and in the West End.
Come along and find out why, as the saying goes - Fame lives forever!
