The Wales Academy of Voice and Dramatic Arts Students Present: Fugitive Songs
This innovative song cycle, conceived as half-musical, half-hootenanny, spotlights people on the run: a disgruntled Subway sandwich employee, a jilted ex-cheerleader, a pair of Patty Hearst fanatics, a stoner forced to rob a convenience store against his will, and many others.
Blending traditional folk music with contemporary pop and gospel, Fugitive Songs offers a new sound for a restless America. This eclectic score provides exceptional material for a wide range of experienced singers and delivers poignant and thought-provoking lyrics that capture each character's "reasons to run."
