The students of Bath Academy of Musical Theatre will be performing the song cycle Elegies for Angels, Punks & Raging Queens for their end of year showcase on Monday 15th June at 6:30pm.
The musical is a celebration and reflection of the lives lost to AIDS – told in free verse monologues with a blues, jazz & rock score. The piece is designed to include the community in a theatrical response to the AIDS crisis, and boasts a score that is moving, soulful and uplifting.
Bath Academy of Musical Theatre will be performing the song cycle to raise funds for the Terrence Higgins Trust. Lasting approximately one hour, the performance is free of charge with the opportunity to make a donation to the charity at the end.
Elegies for Angels, Punks & Raging Queens will be performed at The Roper Theatre in Hayesfield Girls School, Bath.
