'We Will Rock You': Sydney Sneak Peek + Details

You guys, THE musical for music lovers is BACK! (Sponsored by Nuffnang)

And it's at the Sydney Lyric Theatre right now. That's at The Star. And that's the Ben Elton stage show... yes. It's here... again!

Our Josie's Juice guest blogger attended the special sneak peek - and she and her guest loved it!

Here is a wrap up from the opening night:

Says Moni, our guest blogger:

'We Will Rock You'... And that it did!

The show was full of high energy dance and music - by all the cast and audience alike.

The musical score was phenomenal, and the talent that oozed from these young actors was mind blowing!

I sat at the edge of my seat holding onto each note as it was sung. The show was so cleverly written, combining old time rock with today's lyrics, expertly capturing the attention of the audience, young and old.

It's a definite must see, and I will be returning to take my teenage daughter and her friends.

Says the online blurb about the show:

WE WILL ROCK YOU, the worldwide smash hit musical by Queen and Ben Elton is guaranteed to blow your mind. ‘This multi-million dollar show dazzles all the senses in breathtaking style and its now playing in Sydney before touring Australia.

Over 16 million theatregoers in 28  countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring production. WE WILL ROCK YOU features stunning costumes, sets and lighting and 24 of Queen’s legendary hits; We are the Champions, Radio Ga Ga, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, 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. 

WE WILL ROCK YOU is a futurist adventure set in the year 2350, a time when live music is banned on earth, but the kids are in rebellion, fighting against a diet of synthesized pop.

The multi-talented cast includes Gareth Keegan (Jersey Boys, Hugh Jackman – Broadway to Oz concerts) as Galileo and Erin Clare (Heathers, Phantom of the Opera) as Scaramouche. Brian Mannix, the lead singer of 1980s band Uncanny X-Men, will return to the musical stage as Buddy, and Killer Queen will be played by the extraordinary Casey Donovan (The Sapphires, Rent). Thern Reynolds (Rock of Ages, South Pacific) as Britney, Jaz Flowers (Hairspray, Hot Shoe Shuffle, Fame) as Oz and Simon Russell (ABC TV’s Jack Irish, Neighbours) as Khashoggi.
