Fame, The Musical

In 1980, a group of vibrant, energetic young people, African-American, White, Hispanic, rich and poor alike, converge on New York City's West 46th Street to audition for the last class of the famous New York High School of Performing Arts (P.A.) before it closes.  Praying they make "P.A." has become their mantra and as the students tear open their letters from the school, they learn of their acceptance and a joyous dance of celebration ensues.


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.


This show will take you through the highs, lows, friendships, romances and the sheer hard work that becomes daily life for the star-struck pupils in their quest for success.  Not everyone makes it, but the triumphant students perform a spine-tingling finale that has prompted standing ovations around the world and our show will be no exception.
