The film and TV series Fame was a huge hit in the 1980s and now you can see it performed live on stage.

Fame – The Musical is a new production of the show and it will be at Milton Keynes Theatre from May 12 to 17.

For those too young to remember the original, Fame is set in the High School for Performing Arts in New York where young talented performers try to learn the skills to become a star.

It is a story of ambition, triumph, heartbreak and romance and charts the ups and downs in the students’ lives. Some of the youngsters will make it and some will simply not be able to cope with the pressure.

And of course there are breathtaking dance routines and showstopping tunes including Play A Love Scene and the Fame theme itself.

The show has had seven West End runs since its premiere in the US in 1988 and it continues to be performed all over the world.

Fame – The Musical is directed by award-winning director and choreographer Gary Lloyd who previously worked on Thriller Live, 20th Century Boy, Flash Mob and The Story of Marc Bolan.

Fame is on from Monday, May 12, to Saturday, May 17, at 7.30pm and on the Wednesday and Saturday at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost from £10 to £37.50 from the box office on 0844 871 7652.
