Leg-warmers ready ... it's time for Fame!

12 August 2010
By Leah Strug

REMEMBER their name ... the Customs House Summer School kids have been working hard for the last two weeks to win their roles, learn their lines and put on their own production of Fame.
The musical is set at New York City's High School of Performing Arts following a group of student actors, dancers and musicians in their relationships during the four-year course.

The audience can watch them coming to terms with life and relationships and strive for excellence, helping and hindering each other on the way.

Director David Ducasse has been steering the cast of 34 from day one and is looking forward to show opening tomorrow at the Mill Dam venue, in South Shields.

David, who has worked closely with his Performers Stage School colleagues, choreographer Ashley Lamb, and musical director Stacey Ghent, said: "Fame is one of the most popular shows of all time and it's not hard to see why.

"It has comedy, drama and emotion in abundance. Then of course there is a fantastic soundtrack that is impossible to not sing and dance along to. Fame promises to be fun for all the family and an unmissable show!"

The group may only have had a matter of days to learn the script, harmonies and dance moves, but they'll be putting the kids of the High School of Performing Arts to shame with how much they've picked up.

David added: "The kids in the Summer School have worked incredibly hard in such a short space of time to get the show ready.

"I am really proud of their efforts and can't wait to see the show come alive on stage."
