Preview: Fame The Musical at Darlington Civic Theatre
It’s Gonna Live Forever
Darlington Civic Theatre presents a brand-new production of FAME: The Musical - like you’ve never seen it before from Monday 9 to Saturday 14 June
A dynamic, all-new production by Bill Kenwright - re-imagines and re-mixed for 2014!
Based on the Oscar-winning musical film and hugely successful TV series, FAME – THE MUSICAL will take you on a hi-octane rollercoaster ride through dizzy heights and crashing lows as a group of star-struck wannabes embark on their quest for the ultimate accolade – fame.
At the world famous High School for Performing Arts New York, young talented hopefuls undertake the journey of their lives. Ambition, triumph, heartbreak and romance conspire to steer them off course, and the pressure is too much for some. But these kids are determined to live forever and as they rocket through breathtaking dance routines and show stopping tunes FAME is the feel-good sensation that you will never forget!
Bursting with dynamic dance routines and unforgettable songs, including Play a Love Scene and Fame, FAME has enjoyed seven West End runs since premiering in the USA in 1988 and continues to be performed all over the world.
A musical for a new generation, this production of Fame – the Musical will feature a young, energetic cast fresh from drama school including; Jodie Steele as Carmen Diaz, Harry Blumenau as Schlomo Metzenbaum, Sarah Harlington as Serena Katz, Alex Jordan-Mills as Nick Piazza, Molly Stewart as Mabel Washington, Alex Thomas as Tyrone Jackson, Sasi Strallen as Iris Kelly, Joseph Giacone as Joe Vegas, John Canmore as Mr Scheinkopf, Alexzandra Sarmiento as Grace ‘Lambchops’ Lamb, Ross Lee Fowkes as Goodman ‘Goody’ King, David Haydn as Mr Myers. The cast also includes Ryan Lee Seager, Aaron James, Farrah Abigail Hussain, Micha Richardson and Hannah Wilson.
Breathing new life into Fame – the Musical will be award winning director/choreographer Gary Lloyd whose credits include Thriller Live, 20th Century Boy, Flash Mob and The Story of Mark Bolan.
