Monday Show Entertainment, a musical theatre school based in Subang Jaya, is collaborating with The Actors Studio to bring the story of FAME to stage!
Featuring young Malaysian talents who are mostly young working adults and a handful of college students, the musical is about the life of students who get into P.A., the prestigious college of the arts.
Directed by Monday Show’s creative director, Dominic Lucien Luk, with choreography by Michael Parks, this stage production of FAME promises to be full of energy, with songs by Steve Margoshes and lyrics by Jacques Levy.
Most people know the theme song of this show, FAME, from the 1980 and 2009 films, which were conceptualised by David De Silva. The stage version premiered in 1988 in Miami, Florida. The young cast in this production are mainly from Monday Show’s musical theatre training program for teens and adults. The students attend classes at least twice a week to hone their skills in singing, dancing, and acting.
This show also marks the 5th year this musical theatre training program has been running. In the past years, Monday Show’s students have produced shows like Avenue Q, Monday Show Exposed, Monday Blues and Other Hues, and a series of musical shows called Small Stage held at SS15 in Subang Jaya.
