Marie Clark Musical Theatre Company presents "Fame The Musical". Directed by Chris Daniels, produced by David De Silva, with music and lyrics by Steve Margoshes and Jacques Levy. Musically Directored by Ben Stefanoff and Choreographed by Ali Walsh and Vanessa Redmond, the show will premiere at The Goodwood Institute on October 23rd, running until October 31st.

Adapted from the 1980s movie and later remade in 2009 and set in a High School for the Performing Arts, it follows a diverse group of students who commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work. Jasmine Garcia is played Carmen Diaz, who played her part very well. She faunted her attitude on stage and made the crowd fall in love with her as we watched her fall in love with Schlomo Metzenbaum.

Schlomo was played by Mark Stefanoff, who is well-known to Australia for appearing on The Voice. When he sang alongside his classmates to 'Bring on Tomorrow', tears streamed down his face. The emotion and commitment he put into this stage production was remarkable. He's got a huge future in the theatre industry, but apparently a just as big one in the singing department; we will see him later in the year in the Civic Carols alongside Rachel Beck.

Serena Katz (Lucy Carey) and Mitchell Smith (Nick Piazza) start the production in the friend zone and as the story progresses and they move through their years at school. we see them fall in love finally produce a 'Love Scene'. These two had great on-stage chemistry.

Standout performers include Tayla Coad who was born to dance and suited her dance partner perfectly and Josh Angeles who already made bang in Hairspray and now has owned the stage again.

The featured all the songs from the movie including 'Fame', 'Out Here on My Own', 'Hot Lunch Jam', 'Dogs in the Yard', 'Red Light' and more. Don't miss your chance to see this amazing production come to life before your eyes.
