Star power for Ultimate School Musical

And here is your first look at the team who head up Ultimate School Musical: Fame for FOX8.

The series, to air later this month, follows Years 7 to 12 students from Essendon Keilor College as they rehearse a production of Fame for public performance.

The production is directed by talented cabaret performer Eddie Perfect with Australian Idol discoveryAnthony Callea as Vocal Coach and Kelly Aykers as Choreographer. Aykers, who has a long history as a music theatre performer, runs Ministry of Dance studio with So You Think You Can Dance Australia‘s Jason Coleman.

Ruby Rose is the show’s host.

The series, based on a UK format, premieres 7:30pm Tuesday April 20, five days after the stage production of Fame opens at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre.

Others from the stage production, including producer John Frost and Director Kelley Abbey, are expected to make appearances across the ten episodes.


  1. This really is going to be great series and @Seymor Smith I actually went to the final performance and I can tell you first hand it was great, I’m excited about seeing it from the first episode now they really uncovered some talent. In my opinion they couldn’t have picked a better professional team.

  2. According to some people I know who went to the actual performance it was appalling. Still the show could still be entertaining.

  3. If Nothing else, it will be great to see and hopefully hear Anthony Callea (singing) again. He’s So Gorgeous and Cute!
    Great Work FOX8.
    I miss you Anthony.

  4. Its a stellar team and the Foxtel promo’s have been really great.. I have heard the finale at the Regent is quite something. I’m really looking forward to it starting in a couple of weeks.

  5. As much as I think Ruby Rose is totally over-exposed and over-hyped, I think this will be worth a look – thank god Pay TV are trying new things because the FTA’s certainly aren’t.

  6. While I gather this is yet another twist on the reality format, will give this one a try. Interesting cast and the ads they’ve been running on Fox look good.
