The countdown is on at the Millennium Forum for the Youth Musical production of the hit musical, ‘Fame’, which opens at the Millennium Forum, the North West’s premier venue on Wednesday 26th July and runs until Sat 29th July.  This all local youth version of one of the best-selling musicals of all time and will feature the cream of local talent.

A high-octane musical featuring the Academy Award-winning title song ‘FAME’ and a host of other catchy pop tunes, the amateur production tells the story of a group of performing arts students who join New York City’s much celebrated High School in 1980 until they graduate from it four years later.

Mike Braniff, firmus energy’s Marketing Officer said,

“firmus energy is proud to be actively involved in communities across Northern Ireland, especially in Derry-Londonderry – one of the first areas we brought natural gas to as part of our 10 Towns Network project back in 2015.

“firmus energy recognises that it is important to give back to the local areas in which it operates, wherever possible – that is why the company is giving its support to the Millennium Forum’s Youth Musical FAME The Musical.

“I would personally like to wish everyone involved with the show the very best of luck,” added Mike.

Welcoming the partnership with firmus energy, Cara McCartney, Development and Creative Engagement Manager at the Millennium Forum said.

“We would like to extend our gratitude to firmus energy for their invaluable support as our show sponsor. As a registered charity, the Millennium Forum relies on the generosity of partners and funders like firmus energy to bring exceptional performances to over 300,000 people each year. This support enables us to reinvest in our community outreach initiatives, with our annual youth musical being a shining example.

With firmus energy as our show sponsor, we can now reach even deeper into our communities and provide free professional arts facilitation to all our young participants of Fame the Musical during the summer period. The Millennium Forum’s annual Youth musical serves as a significant milestone,

often serving as the first step into the professional world of theatre for many of our talented participants.

Thank you firmus energy for empowering our young performers”

FAME The Musical is one of a number of productions that form part of The Millennium Forum’s youth projects of which Derry Girls star Jamie Lee O’Donnell is a patron.
