The Opera House Blackpool is excited to announce a long-anticipated visit from the 30th Anniversary tour of Fame The Musical, from Monday 13 August – Saturday 18 August 2018.
Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film, this show is an 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. Exploring issues that confront many young people today: prejudice, identity, pride, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance,
Since it’s opening on Broadway in 1988, Fame the Musical has seen seven West End runs and continues to be one of the best loved musicals across the world.
Presented by Selladoor Worldwide, producers of Footloose, Avenue Q, Little Shop of Horrors and Flashdance The Musical, with Adam Paulden & Dan Looney. Fame will be directed and choreographed by Nick Winston with design by Morgan Large.
David Hutchinson Executive Creative Director of Selladoor said: “This new tour for 2018 celebrates the 30 years since the premiere of the Broadway production and will very much have its roots in the style and nostalgia of the original musical.
“Selladoor are dedicated to bringing large scale theatre to as broad an audience as possible across the UK and internationally, and we’re delighted to add another classic musical to our ever-growing portfolio.”
Featuring the Oscar-winning title song and a cast of outstanding dancers, singers, musicians and rappers as they transform from star struck pupils to superstars, Fame The Musical will indeed live forever.
