What sad news to wake up to. The negative bias in the way Fidel is being portrayed makes me realise anew how completely the US Miami perspective has dominated. It makes me realise again why this musical is important. feel free to contact me on email@example.com if you’d like to talk to me about why I’m doing this musical.
Our xmas crowdfunder campaign ironically launched today, to help us put on the first full production, please contribute on http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/fidel-a-musical
We have launched another round of our competition to write new songs for Fidel the musical (deadline 16th December 2016). The competition is free to enter. Check out the ‘Song Themes’ tab to see which songs we still need. We may extend the deadline till 3rd April 2017 for selected song categories if we still need more songs.
What a spectacular evening we had on Sunday! Many thanks to all those who participated or came along to watch. You can listen to the winning songs and see what the audience had to say about them here http://fidelthemusical.org/gala-event/

We managed to raise £2500 to workshop the musical at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton in 2016 via crowd-funding but we didn’t manage to sell our revolutionary glass. Check out our ebay listing above to bid for it and all proceeds will go towards the workshop. https://southampton.hubbub.net/p/fidel-the-musical
