Fame The Musical will be touring the UK to celebrate its 30th anniversary. It will be playing at Brighton’s Theatre Royal from Monday 5th – Saturday 10th November, and general tickets go on sale today, January 15th at 10am. The production will visit various other UK locations such as Glasgow, Blackpool and Birmingham after its opening at the Manchester Palace Theatre on July 26th.
Fame – The Musical, written by David De Silva and based on the 1980 musical film, premiered in 1988 in Miami, Florida. It has now had productions in 25 different countries, and has been seven times in the West End! The show features a different script and score to the film itself, but references it in several places. The 2018 production will be directed and choreographed by Nick Winston, with design by Morgan Large.
Nick Winston’s credits include the choreography of several musicals including Annie (Piccadilly Theatre) and Loserville (Garrick Theatre), as well as the direction and choreography for the 2017 U.K. tour of The Wedding Singer.
David Hutchinson, executive creative director of Selladoor, said: “This new tour for 2018 celebrates the 30 years since the premiere of the production and will very much have its roots in the style and nostalgia of the original musical.” This production promises to enchant both die hard fans of the show, and those lucky enough to see it for the first time!
