'Fame' looks set to live forever

Where: Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

When: January 21-26

A new season bursts on to the Everyman stage in January as Fame The Musical comes to town from the 21st to 26th.

The definitive 30th anniversary tour stars Keith Jack (Any Dream Will Do; Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Mica Paris (Love Me Tender, Chicago, Mama I Want To Sing) and Jorgie Porter (Hollyoaks, Dancing On Ice).

Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film, Fame The Musical 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.

The show features 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 The Musical will indeed live forever.
