WE WILL ROCK YOU
October 29 - 31, 2021
Queen inspired rock musical 'We Will Rock You' to rock Ascot in October.
October 29 – 31 BritVic Theatre, LVS Ascot
Ocean Theatre Company will present WE WILL ROCK YOU, with music by Queen and script by Ben Elton, at the BritVic Theatre, LVS Ascot making it their 26th production in 13 years.
WE WILL ROCK YOU is a quirky, eccentric and heartfelt story of outsiders. It is also a creative cautionary tale for the cyberage. With the Oscar-winning film, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, the music of Queen is more popular than ever.
WE WILL ROCK YOU follows two revolutionaries, Galileo and Scaramouche, on a quest to save rock n’ roll in a post-apocalyptic world where there are no musical instruments and rock n’ roll has died. Galileo and Scaramouche join a small group of societal outcasts, the Bohemians, as they fight to take back the iPlanet from the all-powerful Globalsoft, led by the Killer Queen. They will fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of rock n roll.
Since 2002 over 16 million theatregoers in 19 countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring production which is based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn). Elton fashioned this futuristic story around more than 20 of Queen’s biggest hit songs 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.
