Hit West End musical, Bat out of Hell – The Musical, has today announced a wide-ranging partnership to support the Invictus Games Foundation, the governing body of the Invictus Games, a global sporting event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans.
An initial financial contribution has been generously given by Bat out of Hell – The Musical as part of a year-long sponsorship to the Invictus Games Foundation, to assist as it delivers its transformational work.
To launch the partnership, an exclusive charity gala performance of Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical will be held for Invictus Games competitors.
In addition, hundreds of tickets are being made available for veterans and their families to experience the hit show. To support those who live outside of London, the show’s producers have also made funds available that will assist with travel costs for those who live outside of the Capital.
There will be private tours, family theatre workshops and the producers have agreed to run a special employment programme to help assist wounded, injured or sick serving or ex-service personnel interested in a career in the theatre.
Dominic Reid, CEO of the Invictus Games Foundation said: “We are thrilled that the show’s producers have chosen the Invictus Games Foundation as their global charitable partner. This partnership will contribute enormously to the important work of the Foundation as it continues to serve those who have served.”
Bat Out Of Hell – The Musical Producer, Michael Cohl said: “We are proud to be partnering with the Invictus Games Foundation and to be supporting this wonderful charity with its mandate to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and drive respect for those who serve.”
Julian Stoneman, General Manager continued: “This special partnership will deliver opportunities for veterans and give families living in and outside of the capital the chance to experience the best that West End theatre has to offer.”
