Fame – The Musical announces new UK tour

by -

Fame – The Musical has announced a 30th anniversary UK tour.

After opening at the Manchester Palace Theatre on July 26, Fame will visit locations including Glasgow, Blackpool, Bradford, Sheffield and Birmingham.

The tour runs until February 19, 2019, with the final date at the Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury.

With casting to be announced, Fame will be directed and choreographed by Nick Winston. Design will be by Morgan Large.

Fame the Musical has seen seven West End runs since opening in Miami 1988.

The latest production is presented by Selladoor Worldwide, with Adam Paulden and Dan Looney.

David Hutchinson, executive creative director of Selladoor, said: “This new tour for 2018 celebrates the 30 years since the premiere of the production and will very much have its roots in the style and nostalgia of the original musical.

“Selladoor are dedicated to bringing large-scale theatre to as broad an audience as possible across the UK and internationally, and we’re delighted to add another classic musical to our ever-growing portfolio.”
