REVIEW: ‘Fame the Musical’ – Milton Keynes Theatre, August 2016

 

The kids starring in Fame the Musical at Milton Keynes Theatre this weekend will remember the magic of standing together on that stage for the rest of their lives.

Every cast member radiated sheer joy to be a part of the opening performance on Friday evening. Their enthusiasm was simply infectious. They lit up the auditorium with dazzling dance tricks; reached the high notes during all those unforgettable songs; and acted their hearts out to bring the trials and tribulations of the talented teens at New York City’s High School of Performing Arts to the stage.

After growing up dancing and performing – and finding my feet as a ballet teacher – I am all too familiar with the amount of effort that goes into putting any performance together. So I have nothing but admiration for the Creative Learning department at Milton Keynes Theatre. Fame the Musical is their fifth Stage Experience production and, once again, they have demonstrated how much oodles of hard work and an eager group of youngsters can achieve. All with just twelve days of rehearsals!
