We Will Rock Adelaide in July 2018

Matt Byrne brings Queen musical to the stage in Adelaide and Elizabeth

Matt Byrne Media will present the SA Premiere of the phenomenal Queen and Ben Elton musical We Will Rock You at the Arts Theatre from July 5 to 14 and Elizabeth’s Shedley Theatre from July 19-28.

We Will Rock You (WWRY) is a rock musical based on the songs of British rock band Queen with a book by Ben Elton. The musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music has been lost.

Producer/director Byrne said presenting We Will Rock You is “an incredible opportunity for MBM and the terrific all-Adelaide cast.”

“The show has been one of the greatest musical hits on the West End, Broadway and in the Eastern States,” Byrne said.

“But it has never made it to Adelaide – until now! Queen has an incredible following in SA and Ben Elton’s comedy has always been popular through The Young Ones and Blackadder.

“The combination gives us one of the world’s most enjoyable rock musicals, it’s funny, it’s fabulous, it’s rebellious, it’s futuristic, it’s rock and roll!

“With songs like We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, Another One Bites The Dust and I Want To Break Free, we are going to have a Bohemian Rhapsody next July!”

Byrne is thrilled with the cast and production team.

“The leading roles of Galileo and Scaramouche will be played by two outstanding young SA talents in Iman Saleh and Daniella Greaves,” he said.

“Then we have April Stuart as Killer Queen and James McCluskey-Garcia as her Khashoggi, who rule Iplanet in the year 2300.

“The Bohemians rebels will be led by Kathryn Driver as Oz and Anthony Butler as Brit. And we have a wonderful ensemble with the vocal talent necessary to sing the roof off!”

Byrne will direct and design Saturday Night Fever with musical direction by Kim Clark and choreography by Sarah Williams.

“Kim is one of Adelaide’s finest MDs and a huge Queen fan and Sarah is back after doing a tremendous job with Saturday Night Fever.”

We Will Rock will play the Arts Theatre from July 5 to 7 and 10 to 14 at 8 p.m., & July 7 and 14 at 2 p.m., and Elizabeth’s Shedley Theatre from July 19-21 and 26 to 28 at 8 p.m. & July 21 & 28 at 2 p.m.

The $25 Cheap Nights will be Tuesday, July 11 at the Arts, and Thursday, July 19 at the Shedley.

Admission is $45 Adults and $38 for Concessions, with Group Discount prices of $42 /$35 for 10 or more. (Booking Agency Fees Apply.)

Bookings are available on mattbyrnemedia.com.au, 8262 4906, BASS or dramatix.com.au (agency booking fees apply.)
