The best in West Midlands talent will take to The Alexandra stage with a full-scale production of this smash-hit musical, with its bittersweet and uplifting story and a score of unforgettable songs including Out Here On My Own, These Are My Children, Let’s Play A Love Scene and of course the famous theme song Fame.
Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film, the story follows the final class of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts through their struggles, fears and triumph as they navigate the worlds of music, drama and dance.
See the stars of the future light up the sky like a flame this summer!
