College cast step out for Fame show

DANCE students from Edinburgh are putting on their very own version of the hit musical Fame this week.

Students from Telford College put on their first performance of the show last night at the Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh.

The show, called NYC Fame, is a specially-crafted production based on the Fame legacy which began with the Academy-award winning movie from the 1980s and then went on to become a long-running television series before becoming a stage production.

The cast is made up of first and second-year students studying the HND professional stage dance course.

Laura Taylor, the show’s musical director, said: "This is an electric, specially-devised production which includes high impact dance and well-known songs from the movie. Audiences will certainly go home dancing in the streets. Leg warmers and sweatbands are a must."

NYC Fame is running at the Brunton Theatre until Saturday. Performances will start at 7.30pm with a matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday.

Students from the college will also be appearing in a series of performances at Ocean Terminal in Leith on Saturday and Sunday from 12.30pm.
