KENSINGTON resident Wyatt Gordon will set the stage alive next month with his performance in Fame – The Musical playing at Koorliny Arts Centre.

Presented by Laughing Horse Productions and directed by Cat Rippon, Fame follows the highs and lows of students at New York City’s illustrious High School for the Performing Arts.

Gordon plays Tyrone Jackson, a loveable and charming dancer from the rough part of town.

“Fame appealed to me because I knew Tyrone would be a fun character to play,” he said.

“He is raw but talented and has an attitude problem, which I can relate to.

“I love how he enjoys being the centre of attention, like me, and just has a swagger about it, which makes him the best character at the school.

“Playing Tyrone is amazing but it’s been challenging learning all his dances, especially ballet which is completely new to me.”

Fame – The Musical will show at 8pm June 15, 16, 22 and 23 with 2pm matinees June 16 and 23.

Tickets are $25, $23 concession and $18 children.
