LEG-WARMERS at the ready – Fame is back.

More than 130 wannabe stage stars and behind-the-scenes talent have been working hard for the past fortnight to stage their version of the musical spin-off of the classic 80s film.

The fruits of their labour can be seen at the Sunderland Empire tomorrow and Saturday.

The musical is the latest offering from the venue’s annual summer stage school, the Sunderland Empire Stage Experience. It sees young people, aged nine to 25, working alongside a professional director, musical director and choreographer to train in singing, dancing, acting and backstage technical theatre, before taking to the main stage for four performances of their chosen musical.

Tickets for Fame the Musical, priced £9–£17, are available by calling 0844 871 3022 or online at www.ATGtickets.com/Sunderland.
