MANY people of a certain age will remember the incredibly popular television series about students at a performing arts college in America and the subsequent hit film - Fame.

And now Fame the Musical is on its UK Tour starring soul legend Mica Paris, TV star Jorgie Porter and theatre favourite Keith Jack and they will be on stage at Malvern’s Festival Theatre in the show’s 30th Anniversary UK tour next week.

They will appear locally from Monday, July 8 to Saturday, July 13.

Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film, Fame - The Musical is the international smash-hit sensation following the lives of students at New York’s High School For The Performing Arts as they navigate their way through the highs and lows, the romances and the heartbreaks and the ultimate elation of life.

This bittersweet but uplifting triumph of a show explores the issues that confront many young people today: prejudice, identity, pride, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance.

The show will feature the Oscar-winning title song and a cast of outstanding dancers, singers, musicians and rappers as they transform from star struck pupils to superstars.
