An unmistakable title from the unforgettable film & TV series, Fame-The Musical inspired generations to fight for fame and light up the sky like a flame! Conceived and developed by David De Silva - now known affectionately to the planet as "Father Fame" - this high-octane musical features the Academy Award-winning title song and a host of other fabulous and much-loved numbers.
The show follows the final class of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts from their admission to their graduation. All their struggles, fears, and triumphs - from prejudice to substance abuse - are depicted with razor-sharp focus as the young artists navigate the worlds of music, drama, and dance.
Fame is an international sensation that continues to reach new generations of performers and audience members. This vibrant modern-day production features learners from NSA alongside professional actors including Jonathan Taylor, Dean Roberts , Helen Dubois and Lala Tuku.
