At last! After months of darkened venues and empty stages, live theatre makes a triumphant return from October 30 at Crown Theatre with Platinum Entertainment’s production of the acclaimed jukebox musical, We Will Rock You, based on the music of British rock legends, Queen, and the book by Ben Elton.
We Will Rock You tells the story of planet Earth 300 years in the future where society exists under an Orwellian regime designed to ensure that everyone looks and acts the same. A place where music — especially rock music — is virtually unknown.
But there are some, like the Bohemians, who don’t conform. Their quest is to find the music that will defeat the regime and set the people free, framed against a feast of iconic Queen hits including Radio Ga Ga, I Want to Break Free, Killer Queen, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody and, of course, the eponymous We Will Rock You.
Australian Idol winner Casey Donovan, who played Killer Queen in the recent Sydney and Melbourne seasons to much acclaim, will reprise her role alongside a cast of talented West Australians including Matt Dyktynski, Jamie Mercanti AKA Slim Jim, and Paula Parore. We Will Rock You is the perfect musical to get Perth audiences back into the theatre to experience the wonders of live performance with one of the world’s favourite musicals.
We Will Rock You is coming to Perth’s Crown Theatre from October 30. Click here for tickets.
