A spectacular film will be retold on the big stage at a West Country theatre this month, and the Mercury has tickets up for grabs.
Based on the 1980 phenomenal pop culture film, Fame - The Musical is the international smash-hit sensation following the lives of students at New York's High School For The Performing Arts as they navigate their way through the highs, lows, romances, heartbreaks and the ultimate elation of life.
The bittersweet but uplifting triumph of a show explores the issues which confront many young people today, including prejudice, identity, pride, sexuality, substance abuse and perseverance.
Keith Jack is best-known as the runner-up on BBC1's Any Dream Will Do and will take on the role of Nick Piazza.
He will be joined by one of the UK's most respected female singers, Mica Paris, who will take on the role of Miss Sherman.
She said: "The movie Fame was a big favourite of mine because it really was the first glimpse of what the beginning process of becoming trained artist entailed - I'm so happy to be in the musical."
Another celebrity to join the cast is Hollyoaks star and Dancing On Ice runner-up Jorgie Porter, who will play Iris Kelly.
