The popular musical from the 1980s Fame

The musical follows students from the College of Performing Arts (P.A.) in their journey through life at this prestigious college of the arts.
In the story, the characters encounter many challenges during their time at college – girls who want to be skinny, boys who want to keep their pride, some who want to be famous fast, and others who realise that even the most talented and ambitious ones would face a roadblock called reality.
is directed by Monday Show Entertainment creative director Dominic Lucien Luk and choreographed by Michael Parks.
The show also incorporates the original songs and lyrics by Steve Margoshes and Jacques Levy, including its popular theme song, "Fame
" from the 1980 and 2009 movies conceptualised by David De Silva.
