SOME of the audience was moved to tears at a school production of hit musical Fame which enjoyed a two-day run on a prestigious Southsea stage.

More than 1,000 people saw Miltoncross’ show at the Kings Theatre which boasted dozens of talented young dancers and singers, as well as a professional set.

Katie Glover, 16, who played the main character of Carmen – a young dancer who wants to be a professional performer but succumbs to drugs – said she’d love to do it all over again.

She said: ‘It was amazing. I enjoyed every single performance and I’m so proud of the entire cast who performed brilliantly.

‘The high point for me was singing In LA, where Carmen describes heading to LA with dreams of being a star but ending up on drugs.

‘It was a massive song and I put all my emotions into it – a few people told me it made them cry!’

Angela Wallis, head of drama, said she was incredibly proud of the students and paid special tribute to Katie who was ‘phenomenal’.
