Bat Out of Hell announces partnership with Invictus Games Foundation
As part of a year-long sponsorship deal with the governing body of the Invictus Games, which were created by Prince Harry for injured, wounded and sick service personnel, producers will make hundreds of tickets available to veterans and their families for the show, and will make funds available for those travelling from outside of London to the Dominion Theatre.
There will also be private tours, family theatre workshops and an employment programme for wounded, injured or sick serving or ex-service personnel who are interested in pursuing 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.”
The musical, which features songs from the Meatloaf Bat Out of Hell albums, features the songs “I Would Do Anything For Love”, “For Crying Out Loud” and “Bat Out of Hell”. The musical reopened in London in April at the Dominion Theatre following its world premiere at the London Colisuem last summer.
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.”
