Following a successful run at London’s Peacock Theatre, Nick Winston’s 30th anniversary production of Fame the Musical will transfer to the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre.
It has been confirmed that the production following its run at the Peacock Theatre will transfer to the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre for a limited season from the 21st December until the 26th January.
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.
Casting for the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre has yet to be announced.
Talking about the production, David Da Silva – the conceiver of Fame – said of this anniversary production: “What makes a musical ‘a classic’ or ‘a masterpiece’? It takes time. It passes from one generation to the next. It translates from one language to many. It entertains an audience with both laughter and tears. It inspires youth with passion and parents with nostalgia. The brilliantly directed and choreographed 30th anniversary Fame UK production of the show by Nick Winston is the best I’ve ever seen.”
As well as being directed and choreographed by Nick Winston, this production of the musical features designs by Morgan Large, lighting design by Prema Mehta, sound design by Ben Harrison and music supervision by Mark Crossland. It is presented by Selladoor Productions (Footloose, Avenue Q, Little Shop of Horrors and Flashdance – The Musical) with Gavin Kalin Productions, Dan Looney & Adam Paulden, Stephen McGill Productions and Jason Haigh-Ellery in association with BrightLights Productions and Big Dreamer Productions.
Fame will play at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from the 21st December until the 26th January. To book tickets visit: https://www.troubadourtheatres.com/wembley-park/whats-on/fame
