ELEGIES FOR ANGELS, PUNKS AND RAGING QUEENS is a poetic, theatrical concert reflecting a celebration of lives lived, loved, and lost from AIDS. A series of characters, including drug users, mothers, and members of the queer society take us into the epicenter of the onset of the crisis in the 80’s, sharing a variety of perspectives and emotional responses to the epidemic. There are over 30 poems ranging from the touching, to dramatic to humorous. Interjections by friends and family members through song show that it is not only the infected that are affected by this disease. Sewn together this creates a theatrical event with humor and heart for humanity.

Making Change In Jacksonville
A group of artists and friends came together with a common goal: to make a change in the Jacksonville cultural arts community. From this, The 5 & Dime, a theatre company, was born. It started with a simple question, “Why not us?” And so we offer this: why not YOU? The 5 & Dime opens doors to and for all artists of all disciplines whose passion, skill, drive and enthusiasm need a place to call home. We hope to facilitate diverse opportunities and a supportive environment to feature flourishing talent and collaboration. So, with a renewed hope in what is possible – from people just like you - we boldly set forth on this new venture. Come along, won’t you?
