What is Fame the Musical about?

Based on the hit 80s film of the same name, Fame the Musical has been a fan favourite for 30 years which is what this production is here to celebrate. The highly acclaimed, beloved show has had eight West End runs in that time and the demand still remains.

The show tells the story of a group of performing arts students all at a Manhattan school, from their time as a freshman to their graduation day and the journey in between. These amazingly talented students have a lot of lessons to learn which come from not just their classes but their experiences with love, loss, success, failure, hope and despair. They give it their all to get the big break they all crave whilst dealing with the same struggles all young people do.

Fame includes all the beloved numbers such as ‘Pray/Hard Work’, ‘Bring On Tomorrow’, ‘Think of Meryl Streep’ and ‘Can’t Keep It Down’.

Tickets for Fame the Musical 30th-anniversary production at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre are booking now. The show will run for a limited one-month engagement which is sure to be in high demand following its previous sell-out run at London’s Peacock Theatre.
