WANNA live forever? There's nothing like a dose of musical theatre to leave you feeling like you can take on the world.

From the opening number, it's clear this is going to be a high-energy performance.

Based on the 1980s film and TV programme of the same name, the stage show follows a group of young performers at New York's famous LaGuardia High School for the performing arts.

The phrase "triple threat" could have been coined for this production – so much talent on one stage, with many of the cast showing they were at the top of their game in dance, singing and acting, even playing musical instruments.

I could not take my eyes off of Jamal Kane Crawford, who was perfectly cast in the role of tough hip hop dancer Tyrone, easily stealing the show with his energy and precision.

Former Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter showed off some impressive dance skills as ballerina Iris, while Simon Anthony, who was actually playing musician Schlomo, also shone in the opening dance number of act two.

Aside from the famous title track, Fame is not a musical known for its catchy songs and it felt almost like some of the soloists were trying too hard in places, but the stand-out performance of the night came from Mica Paris as the formidable Miss Sherman. Her phenomenal vocals brought the house down in These Are My Children.

There are darker moments in the show, but we left with smiles on our faces thanks to a final rendition of Fame which instantly brought the audience to their feet.
