Theatre group to perform Elton John musical
Published at 13:29, Thursday, 19 April 2012
ELTON John’s musical Aida hits the stage at The Forum tonight for a three-night run.
The A590 Youth Theatre will become one of the first groups in the country to perform this contemporary take on the classic tale of the timeless bond between an enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, and an Egyptian soldier.
The piece sees Aida (Karen Mitchell) captured by an Egyptian captain, Radames (Christopher Barker).
He soon falls in love with her and saves her from a life of hard labour and instead gives her as a handmaiden to the Egyptian princess Amneris (Hayley Dent), his future bride.
As forbidden love blossoms between them, the young lovers are forced to face death or part forever.
Directed by Graham E Barker, the show will also feature Elton John’s lively pop rock score. The show runs at 7.30pm for the next three nights and tickets are available from the Barrow venue’s box office.
