Wallace High School pupils have recently started rehearsing for their school production of “Fame” which will be staged in September. The show, which started life as a box office smash hit film and TV show in the 1980s, is now a popular West End Musical which has been running for over ten years.
Set in New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street ‘Fame-The Musical’ is a bittersweet but ultimately inspirational story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work.
Director Ashley Fulton explained, “We are delighted to have been granted the rights to such a dynamic show and we hope that fans of Musical theatre will come along to one of our productions in September. Rehearsals are well underway and I am thrilled with the energy and commitment displayed by the cast.”
Musical Director David Falconer went on, I am pleased to announce that a professional orchestra will be playing for the Fame, ensuring that this will certainly be a memorable production. Anthony Fairley who has worked for the National Concert hall in Dublin is designing our set and choreography master classes have also been arranged with professionals from London’s West End.”
