ABOUT STAGE EXPERIENCE
Stage Experience is open to anyone aged 9 - 24 who can commit two weeks of their summer holiday to putting on a musical! You will work alongside our industry professional Director, Choreographer and Musical Director to mount a full-scale production of Fame in just two weeks!
It is a unique opportunity to make new friends, hone your skills in a fast-paced theatre environment and ultimately, experience what it is like to take part in a large-scale production on a par with West End/touring musicals.
The fortnight culminates in 5 fully-staged performances complete with our professional orchestra, set, lighting, sound and costumes at The Alexandra, Birmingham.
FAME THE MUSICAL
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!
Conceived and developed by David De Silva, book by Jose Fernandez, lyrics by Jacques Levy, music by Steve Margoshes, title song "Fame" written by Dean Pitchford and Michael Gore.
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe). All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe.
The Alexandra, Birmingham

In 2018, the venue underwent an extensive refurbishment and reverted to its original name, The Alexandra. The theatre is a valuable contributor to culture within Birmingham and the West Midlands, presenting first-rate musicals, drama, comedy and more.
Notable performances at The Alexandra Theatre include Chicago, Fame and An Inspector Calls, with new shows added regularly. It’s seen many famous faces throughout the years and continues to bring star-studded shows to Birmingham straight from London’s West End. Browse The Alexandra’s show listings now.
