Production inspired by NAMES Project
“Elegies For Angels, Punks and Raging Queens” features songs and monologues inspired by the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt and Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology.
Each of the monologues is written from the perspective of characters who have died from AIDS, and the songs represent the feelings of friends and family members dealing with the loss.
The theater department from Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon will offer several local performances and then take the production to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland in August.
The music is memorable; be ready for an evening of humor, healing and tenderness.
All seats are $10. Tickets are available at the door.
Upcoming performances include:
• Hosted by Curtain Call Theatre, Saturday, June 28 (at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.*) at the Everett Music Hall, 1492 SE. Everett.
• Hosted by Edmonds Driftwood Players, Saturday, July 5 (8 p.m.*) at the Wade James Theatre, 950 Main St. Edmonds.
*ASL will be provided at evening performances.
