For three nights only BTEC Performing Arts students will be presenting an original rock musical ‘The Late Sleepers’.
In a junk-strewn wasteland in a distant future a gang of young people, The Late Sleepers - self-styled vampires - scrape a strange existence on the outskirts of a walled city. Their leader is Gabriel, a dark brooding presence whose jealously guarded store of music, videos and DVDs from earlier centuries has informed the gang's unlikely passion for classic TV, horror movies and pop songs. When two strangers, James and Elsa, stumble on the Sleepers' hideout, they are intrigued by this all-singing, all-dancing gang, and begin a chain of events which will explore both the light and the darkness of their rock and roll vampire existence.
With show-stopping numbers, contemporary dance, drama and betrayal, and, ultimately, heart-breaking bravery, this is a fascinating romp through the world of the Undead, of popular culture, and of teenage rebellion.
Performances will be taking place on Wednesday 30 May, Thursday 31 May and Friday 1 June at 7.30pm at the Richard Colmer Theatre, Southport College.
