...........................................................................................................

When the panel casting Fame: the Musical couldn't decide on someone to play the lead of Carmen Diaz in the local production, who else did they turn to but fellow panelist and veteran of the stage, Kelley Abbey .
The former E Street er and star of Sweet Charity is enjoying her dual role of choreographer/dancer for the musical which opens at Star City tomorrow night.
"I stepped out from behind the panel after the auditions and danced in front of the people I had been judging with," Abbey laughed in between rehearsals this week.
"I guess it is quite unusual and kind of weird."
Starring alongside 70s disco diva Thelma Houston and under the direction of stage stalwart David Atkins , Abbey doesn't like to be typecast as an actress, singer or dancer. "I have always loved everything and if I do one for too long I have to have a crack at the other - it's in my nature."
The Daily Telegraph - 28 July 1999
