Fame: The Musical


Wednesday 14th to Saturday 17th February 2024, London Oratory School Theatre

Fame: The Musical follows the highs and lows of the final class of New York City’s illustrious High School for the Performing Arts, from their first year in 1980 to their graduation in 1984. It tells the story of the students; their toils, triumphs and tempestuous relationships. We see their struggles with ambition, fame, and self-confidence as the young performers explore the realities of striving for a career in show business.

“…a fantastic care-free evening out at the theatre…” — “Cygnet Players should be extremely proud of this production and I can’t wait to see their exciting upcoming season” — “the perfect antidote to the daily grind of the week!”
