FANATICAL THE MUSICAL
by Matt Board and Reina Hardy, directed by Shaun Kerryson
November 7 to December 8
World premiere. In a distant Galaxy – the ragtag misfit crew of cargo ship Angel 8 are under the command of fearless pilot Iris Aucht. Meanwhile…at a conference centre, somewhere in England – a ragtag misfit collection of 1,000 fans gather from all across the UK for Eight Con One, the first ever official convention of the cult TV show Angel 8. Angel 8 started as a comic created by reclusive British Sci-fi author Scott Furnish. Its first TV outing ended on a shocking cliffhanger. With eager anticipation at the promise of a second series, these enthusiastic devotees have come together to celebrate their beloved series and to meet Scott face-to-face and hear his keynote speech.
Fanatical is about being true to oneself, finding love against the odd ,and snatching triumph from the jaws of disaster – proving that no power in the universe can keep a story from its fans.
