New York comes to Sutton Arts Theatre with the stage version of the much loved 80's musical film Fame.
Showing the lives of several students at a performance arts school over the course of 3 years.
Uplifting and fast paced, this show is staying true to the lyrics of the song Fame; "they'll make you forget the rest".
The talented cast all provide high-quality performances and created some real WOW moments.
The music is likely to appeal to most and the cast gave some stunning singing performances too. Highlights include their performances of Hard Work, These Are My Children and Fame.
Carmen Diaz, played by Phebe Jackson, gave a strong performance throughout and really shone in the big finale at the end.
Strong vocal performances also came from Sarah Riches (as Serena Katz) and Colette Forsyth (as Miss Esther Sherman).
The dancing is all well-choreographed and Tyrone Jackson, play by Kyle Henderson, led the way by showcasing his dancing talent.
Laugh out loud comedic performances also came from the character Jose “Joe” Vegas, played by Robbie Newton.
Fame has everything you could want for in an entertaining musical show. It's easy to watch, fun and fast paced with the occasional more poignant moment.
They left the audience on a high from their outstanding performance of the shows big hit Fame.
The costumes were perfect for helping to set the scene and create the feel of the show. Clever use has also been made of the compact stage with the use of a changeable movable set. Those behind the scenes have clearly been working hard to bring the show together.
The music is also delivered through a live orchestra working hard, out of sight, during the show.
A great evening of theatre. Remember my name, Fame!
Fame is on at the Sutton Arts Theatre till 30th June
