Fame

8th July 2019 - 13th July 2019

 

The definitive 30th anniversary tour of Fame The Musical starring 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. 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 The Musical will indeed live forever.

Please note, the recommended age for this show is 12+. Contains adult themes and language.

Running Time: Approx. 2 hours 30 minutes, including a 20-minute interval.

Event Reviews

    "You want fame? Well, fame costs. And right here is where you start paying in sweat"

    Words that weigh heavy on the minds of the characters in the new touring version of Fame The Musical at Malvern this week.

    Originally a film from Brit Sir Alan Parker about the New York High School for the Performing Arts back in 1980, the show has been rarely been out of the public eye thanks to a remake in 2009, a hugely popular six-season TV spin-off and a continuously-touring stage version ever since. And the man who brings it to life again, effectively for a new generation, is David De Silva, the same producer who brought us the original screen version.

    The show hits the ground running with an energetic and enthusiastic start as, against a huge illuminated backdrop of many of the characters in the story, the auditions get under way for the year's intake.

    Overseen by Miss Sherman (Mica Paris, who gets one of the best solos in the show with These Are My Children), the story revolves around what is essentially a bunch of misfits thrown together by their desire to perform - Tyrone (Ryan Kayode replacing Jamal Crawford in this performance due to the latter's "indisposition") who has his own hidden issues which force him into conflict with Miss Sherman, Nick (Keith Jack) struggling to find the love of his life, Joe (Albey Brookes) a lothario who appears to have no problems on that front (until he is forced to wear a hilarious codpiece in his role as Romeo!), Carmen (Stephanie Rojas) who wants nothing less than to be a star at any cost), violinist/pianist Schlomo (Simon Anthony) who tries his best to help out as he is besotted with her and Iris (Jorgie Porter) who works with Tyrone even though their backgrounds are very different.

    The show came to an abrupt and unexpected halt after the first song in Act Two when the curtain came down after an announcement that there had been a technical fault. Luckily it resumed at exactly the same point 10 minutes later, presumably after the issue had been fixed.

    As you would expect, the voices here are all pitch perfect, in solos, duets and in ensemble pieces - Dancin' On The Sidewalk and There She Goes/Fame! being just a couple of the highlights.

    Add to this the music from the excellent (hidden) band plus various members of the cast who play on stage and you have a fast-paced musical which, whilst firmly based on its origins in the mid 80's, is by no means bound by that era, being as relevant in today's "reality show" era of "creating" stars as it was then.

    One very enjoyable show which the whole audience enjoyed, as seen by the standing ovation!

  • Marion

    Brilliant performances by the whole cast. A feel good production. A high energy show. Singing, dancing, music, humour and some pathos. Excellent

  • Jackie

    Very talented cast and decent show but didn’t take me back to my youth as I had hoped it would. No music from the era except the title piece which was the highlight for me.

  • Jane

    Was absolutely amazing really enjoyed it not sure it should be a 12 more of a 15 to be fair

  • Jayne

    Mica Paris and the wonderful cast from Fame simply blew the roof off Malvern Theatre last night ....top class performance ?

  • Clair

    Saw this show last night and was very disappointed. If you are expecting it to be anything like the hit series then be warned...it's not. Clearly I wasn't as big a fan of the series as i thought because i didnt recognise any of the songs apart from the title song. There was non of the classics such as High Fidelity, Starmaker, Desdemona etc. Very overrated and very over priced.

  • Martin

    Saw this in Cheltenham last night ...I'm not trying to lose Malvern any customers, there's only a handful of single seats left for the rest of the week. Really, really loved it. Will definitely be watching it again when it comes to Malvern. Highly recommended.
