Fame the Musical sells out well ahead of opening night
Tickets have been snapped up for a high-school show, with all five performances selling out.
Excitement is building ahead of the Duchess’s Community High School’s eagerly-anticipated production of Fame the Musical.
The production opens on Wednesday night and runs until Saturday, March 11, which includes a matinee on the final day.
The fact that all the tickets have been purchased well in advance of the five-show run is testament to the reputation that the school’s students have built over the years in a string of memorable productions.
And it is also rich reward for all of the effort put in to this year’s musical, which will feature a host of new cast members.
“We are delighted that the tickets have sold out so fast. It is testament to the school’s reputation for drama and musical productions.
“There are lots of new pupils in the cast this year and the band is made up of 11 very talented musicians.”
Fame the Musical is a well-renowned show, which since its first production in the 1980s has had hundreds of professional and amateur productions in every major language.
The Duchess’s students hope that their take on this classic story will be a smash hit and is the latest in a line of incredible shows that the school has performed at the Playhouse.
This includes last year’s successful musical, Rock of Ages, as well as other breathtaking shows such as Disco Inferno, Back to the ’80s, Return to the Forbidden Planet and Grease.
Looking ahead to the production, Year 12 student Andrew Wilson, who is the assistant musical director and conductor, said that the music is ‘quite syncopated’ and that it ‘calls upon the virtuosic values of the performers to pull it off’.
