Showtime for students starring in Fame

Waiting for Video...

The spotlight will shine on students from Airedale Academy tonight when they take to the stage in their version of the hit musical Fame.

Sixth form performing arts students, who go by the name ‘The Cast’ will perform at the Castleford Phoenix Theatre, next to the school on Crewe Road.

The academy’s artistic director, Tracey Bell says she hopes as many people as possible will come and watch the ‘exceptional’ show.

She said: “It’s local, home-grown talent at its best.”

It’s the group’s final major performance before they leave school for university, training or employment.

But many of them are also performing in ‘Beat It,’ a charity fundraising event for Weston Park Cancer hospital, two days after Fame closes, alongside dancers from Channel 4’s Big Ballet.

Tickets for Fame cost £8 for adults and £6 for concessions.

The show starts at 7.15pm.
