Fame – celebrating 30th anniversary with 2018/ 9 UK tour

Celebrating its 30th anniversary Fame – The Musical is touring the UK in a stunning new production starring Mica Paris, Jorgie Porter and Keith Jack.

Selladoor Productions open the tour this July at Manchester Palace Theatre.

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.

We watch them 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.

Keith Jack, playing Nick Piazza, who is best-known as runner-up on BBC1’s Any Dream Will Do, said: “I am really looking forward to performing the role of Nick in the UK Tour of Fame and I’m excited about working with Selladoor again”.

Mica Paris who joins the cast as Miss Sherman is one of the UK’s most respected female singers with top 10 hit singles and albums worldwide spanning her 30 year career.

Mica added: “The movie Fame was a big favourite of mine because it really was the first glimpse of what the beginning process of becoming trained artist entailed – I’m so happy to be in the musical!”

Hollyoaks’s Jorgie Porter, playing Iris Kelly, said: “I am so excited to be making my stage debut playing Iris Kelly in Fame.

“The musical is one of my favourite ever films and I can’t wait to open the show in Manchester, my home town.

“I’ve not had a chance to perform ballet for a long time, it’s what I originally trained in – so I’m looking forward to getting my ballet shoes on!”

Keith, Mica and Jorgie will be joined by Hayley Johnston, Stephanie Rojas, Molly McGuire, Jamal Crawford, Albey Brooks, Louisa Beadel, Simon Anthony, Alexander Zane, Katie Warsop, Dermot Canavan, Cameron Johnson, Rebecca French, Daisy Twells, Tom Mussell, Morgan Jackson, Ryan Kayode.

Fame will be directed and choregraphed by Nick Winston.

* Mica and Jorgie are scheduled to perform in Fame until December 2, 2018, and Keith Jack until 16 June, 2019.
