Growing up in the 80's and attending regular dance classes, I was a big fan of the TV show 'Fame' which followed the lives of students at a Performing Arts School in New York. The Musical version was all-singing, all-dancing but with the highs and lows of the issues young people suffer today:- prejudice, identity, pride, sexuality, substance abuse and pride.
It wasn't a great start to opening night due to an electrical fault but it was soon resolved and we were back in the 80's donning our leg warmers.
It was colourful and enthralling when the big dance scenes kicked in, there was so much energy on the stage. Jorgie Porter (Hollyoaks & Dancing On Ice) showed off her impressive dancing, her connection with Jamal Crawford was sensual. Mica Paris played Principal, Miss Sherman, her voice was strong and powerful and gave me goosebumps.
There were many side stories and we got to know all the characters and their issues. The final song 'FAME' performed by Stephanie Rojas was amazing, the whole audience was up on their feet.
It's on until Saturday 20th April go to the link to book your tickets!
