Dwr-y-Felin Comprehensive School is very pleased to announce that its annual musical production for this academic year is ‘Fame’. Produced and directed by Head of Music Luke Lockyer with choreography by year 11 pupil Leah Yemm, the production will be taking place in the school theatre from Monday 13th to Thursday 16th February 2017.
The musical is set in New York City, in the old high school of performing arts on 46th Street East of Broadway, just off Times Square, during the years 1980-1984. It concerns the last group of students and teachers to inhabit this grand, historic edifice, following them on a four-year journey from freshman term through graduation. Being aware that their school has been the subject of a movie and the pitfalls of fame and reality, events happen around them that change their lives forever. In our times of reality TV and social media being at the forefront of people’s lives, the musical carries an important message for us all.
