May 27, 2014
Competition launched for up-and-coming star to join cast on stage for musical
It was the show that defined a generation of legwarmer-wearing high-kickers – and now Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre is offering one lucky performer to find their own 15 minutes of Fame!
The 80s-inspired touring show will be on at the city centre theatre next week – updated for the 21st Century.
And theatre bosses will today launch an exciting competition offering an up-and-coming performer aged 12 to 16 the chance to join the cast on stage.
It will mean the young winner gets a spot in the show on Thursday, June 5 – along with their very own star dressing room, the chance to meet the professional cast and a couple of tickets for friends or family to enjoy their moment in the spotlight.
The winner will also get tickets to see the show the night before.
Entrants will be asked to send a picture or video of themselves in their best Fame! pose by no later than 9pm on Sunday, June 1, to Kevans@belgrade.co.uk.
The winner will be notified on Monday, June 2. The new-look show, which opens in Coventry on Monday, is set in 2014 at the world-famous High School for Performing Arts in New York and follows the highs and lows of young wannabes as they set on a quest for stardom.
Kate Evans, from the Belgrade Theatre, said: “Bursting with dynamic dance routines and unforgettable songs that have been re-envisioned for 2014 – including Fame and Let’s Play a Love Scene – Fame the Musical has enjoyed seven West End runs since premiering in the USA in 1988 and continues to be performed all over the world.
“This is a really exciting chance for an up and coming local performer to enjoy their own 15 minutes of Fame!”
Entrants can also tweet the theatre @BelgradeTheatre using the hashtag #my15minsofFAME or check out their Facebook page.
