Celebrating its 30th anniversary Fame and its all-star cast will be on stage in Buxton

Posted: 4 July 2019

As part of the 30th anniversary tour of Fame The Musical, an all-star cast including Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter and Keith Jack from Any Dream Will Do will be appearing on stage in Buxton.

Jorgie Porter is best known for her role as the feisty Theresa McQueen in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks. She will be making her stage debut in Fame, taking on the role of talented but insecure ballet dancer Iris Kelly. Jorgie who is from Greater Manchester, originally trained as a ballet dancer and is looking forward to getting her ballet shoes back on for the role of Iris.

Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film, Fame The Musical is the international smash hit sensation following the lives of students at New York’s High School For The Performing Arts as they navigate their way through the highs and lows, the romances and the heartbreaks and the ultimate elation of life. This bittersweet but uplifting triumph of a show explores the issues that confront many young people today: prejudice, identity, pride, literacy, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance.

Fame The Musical has seen seven West End runs since opening on Broadway in 1988 and continues to be one of the best-loved musicals across the world.

Fame The Musical is here at Monday 4- Saturday 9 November. Tickets are priced at £26 - £42. Discounts are available. To buy tickets contact Buxton Opera House Box Office, Tel: 01298 72190 or visit:
