Lindsey Tierney from Stainforth
has got a part in the West End musical 'Fame'.

 

FAME! You're gonna remember my name - and that's certainly what young dancer Lindsey Tierney is hoping.
Lindsey, 20, has just landed a dream job treading the boards in the cult 80s musical Fame as it starts a West End run.
It's a day Lindsey has worked towards since she started dancing at the age of three and the glamour of theatre land will be a far cry from her day job in a town centre newsagents.
Lindsey, of Large Square, Stainforth, will be in the ensemble cast for the show, which revolves around the life and loves of students from New York's academy of performing arts, and is understudy for two lead roles.
"When they rang me up - I was completely shocked - amazed. I just screamed. It is just my ultimate ambition and all my dreams come true all at once."
"I don't really know why they chose me - I think it was because I could do everything - dance, sing and act. They were looking for someone who could differentiate between characters."
Lindsey began dancing at the Nellie Stagles School and was brought up on a diet of ballet, modern, tap, musical, theatre and stage. She then won a place at Phil Winston's Theatre Works in Blackpool where she spent three years.
Her Brighton based agent entered her in the Fame auditions - and she came up trumps against 500 other dancers.
Lindsey travels to London to begin rehearsals at the end of this month. The show starts late September 18.
