Fallen Angels – etc. Music School – December 2-4

etc_fallen-angelsetc. Presents: ‘Fallen Angels’
Music and Lyrics by: Mike O’Mara
With Book by: Mike O’Mara, assisted by the Presents cast

A legendary world with ancient laws. A city in the clouds, with peasants below. When a daughter’s compassion marks her unwanted, it sets off a chain of events that will leave both the Angels of the sky and the Terrans on the surface forever changed. “Fallen Angels” weaves a magical tale around the very real-life issues of social justice, gender equality and the corruption of absolute power.
