Remember the name! The show that’s gonna live forever, Fame The Musical returns to London’s Peacock Theatre with its triumphant 30th anniversary tour production.

Starring Keith Jack (BBC’s Any Dream Will Do, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat), soul singer and TV star Mica Paris, and Hollyoaks’ Jorgie Porter, Fame The Musical is the definitive production of this much-loved musical.

Based on the 1980 pop culture film phenomenon, Fame follows the lives of students at New York’s High School For The Performing Arts. Navigating their way through the highs and lows, the romances and the heartbreaks and the ultimate elation of a performer’s life, the students strive for stardom.

The show touches on many of the issues that confront young people today – prejudice, identity, pride, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance – in a bittersweet but uplifting triumph of a show. The score includes songs including Think Of Meryl Streep, Bring On Tomorrow and, of course, the Oscar-winning title number, Fame.

Fame The Musical has enjoyed seven West End runs since opening on Broadway in 1988, and continues to be one of the best loved musicals across the world.

With a cast of outstanding dancers, singers, musicians and actors, watch as they transform from star struck pupils to superstars. Fame The Musical will indeed live forever.


Age Recommendation: This performance is recommended for ages 12+. It contains sexual, drug, mental health references and mild swearing. i
