Fame the Musical at Bexhill College theatre

Remember the name - FAME The Musical will be staged in the Izzard Theatre on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 May at 2pm and 7pm. The award-winning audience favourite is based on the 1980 hit musical film which boasts one of the most memorable title songs in movie and stage history.

The film was such a success that it spawned a television series that ran for six seasons as well as giving rise to the stage musical which became popular all over the world. In the UK the show has been nominated for two Olivier Awards and enjoyed seven separate West End runs since the first production in 1995.

Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street, FAME is the bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work. With candour, humour and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today.

Tickets are £6 for adults and £4 for concessions and can be purchased online via the Bexhill College website www.bexhillcollege.ac.uk.
