It is nothing short of a global phenomenon. First came the hit motion picture, then the long-running television series. Now the screen sensation of the 1980’s is the stage sensation of the 1990’s and beyond! And if the recent smash-hit West End production is any indication, FAME – THE MUSICAL is indeed “gonna live forever”.

Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984), FAME – THE MUSICAL is a bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work. With candour, humour and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today: issues of prejudice, identity, self-worth, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance.
