We Will Rock You
The Musical by Queen and Ben Elton
Christchurch run of We Will Rock You a highly entertaining show
"This is a first-class production brimming with hi-octane exuberance from start to finish, super-strong leads, an energetic young ensemble cast and a cracking band."
"...an exceptional, high energy, full noise and lights opening night, and an act of defiance against those who would want our lives interrupted."
Kate Divett, Backstage Christchurch
"If you like fantastic singers accompanied by a great band then the Showbiz Christchurch production of We Will Rock You is a fantastic night out."
Imagine a world without rock music. A world under the control of an all-powerful global company and its tyranical boss, the Killer Queen.
Scaramouche and Galileo, two young outsiders, cannot come to terms with this bleak conformist reality. They join the Bohemians, a handful of rock rebels, and embark on the search to find the unlimited power of freedom, love and rock music!
Since 2002 over 16 million theatregoers in 28 countries have rocked out to this unique musical featuring the songs of Queen. Written by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn) this futuristic comedy is based around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hits including: We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and, of course, We Will Rock You.
Warning: production contains coarse language and adult themes, low level dramatised violence, smoke haze, strobe and laser lighting, and loud music.
