David De Silva - the conceiver of Fame, known as 'Father Fame' says of this anniversary production; "what makes a musical 'a classic' or a 'masterpiece'? It takes time. It passes from one generation to the next. It translates from one language to many. It entertains an audience with both laughter and tears. It inspires youth with passion and parents with nostalgia. The brilliantly directed and choreographed 30th anniversary Fame Uk production of the show by Nick Winston is the best I've ever seen"
Featuring the Oscar-winning title song and a cast of outstanding dancers, singers, musicians and rappers as they transform from star struck pupils to superstars. Fame the Musical will indeed live forever.
