Fame – The Musical – Take The Kids At Your Own Peril

Half term has just past us and you are probably glad that the children are back at school and life can return to some sort of normaility.

I remember the half terms of past.

The planning would start a few months before the half term booking up playschemes and activities with careful planning to see if I could manage the pick up and drop off times around my 9-5 job.

Over the half terms, I would have to get my girls up most days to attend the playschemes. They never had the chance for a lie in over the half term. It was just like a school day only this time they were to spend the day in having fun – well at least that what I told them.

It is different now, that they are older, they don’t need you so much and are more independent. But it is still lovely to spend time with them and this half term , we went to see Fame – The musical at The Wimbledon Theatre.

The Fame Production has just started a UK tour and it was the second night. There were the invertible kinks that still needed to be resolved and the endless moving of the stage set of the school to the outside did feel rather over done.

The lead was not present on our performance so a bit of a disappointment for us but what a great opportunity for the understudy who probably had never thought she would be playing the lead role in Fame so early on the process.

So what is my honest review of Fame?

Take younger children at your own peril – they may have some questions to ask? I’m just saying. Some of the acts did get a bit fruity and I was glad my daughter was just that much older and you will have to hope that some of the scenes and words just go over their heads.

Apart from that the dancing was superb and we sat mesmerized at the tricks that were being performed by many of these young performer making their first debut on stage.

Here’s a sneak preview of what to expect
