York LGBT Forum Present: BRING ON TOMORROW
July 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The York LGBT Forum are proud to present a unique theatrical experience penned by local writer and director Steven Clark. Bring On Tomorrow takes the audience on an emotional journey through a history of LGBT landmark points and raises awareness on topics such as homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and hate crime.
The characters are played by a cast of 22 local singers and they are backed by a live 32 piece orchestra under the helm of local Musical Director (now working in London’s West End) Ben Papworth.
Let yourself be guided through World War 2, The Stonewall Riots, The Birth of Pride, Lesbian & Gays Support the Miners, HIV in the 1980’s, the issues faced Aging without Children and to modern day issues we still face such as equality, same sex marriage and Chechnya.
This theatrical event of the LGBT calendar year is set to a backdrop of songs from West End and Broadway musicals such as; Love Never Dies, The King & I, Soho Cinders, Blood Brothers, Imagine This, Jeckyl & Hyde, Les Miserables, Sister Act, Mrs Henderson Presents and Anastasia to name a few.
The show will be narrated by international recording artist Beth McCarthy, Matt Rood (Mr Gay Europe 2017), Steven Whyte (Mr Gay Scotland 2017) and Jonathan Blake (HIV Activist and founder member of LGSM) with other special guests to be announced. VIP Packages are available which include Prime Front Seating, Meet & Greet, Private Bar Area and signed souvenir brochure.
This is an event for everyone to enjoy music from the musicals but learn some LGBT history at the same time, as we raise the bar to encourage equality and diversity in York.
