We will rock you – the musical
Wellington | St James Theatre from 15 aug – 1 sept 2024 | Ticketmaster
The world’s favourite rock musical, WE WILL ROCK YOU, is coming to Wellington for the very first time in 2024.
Featuring 24 of Queen’s greatest hits and a hilarious script by Ben Elton, WE WILL ROCK YOU rivals the scale and spectacle of the band’s legendary live performances.
Brought to Wellington by the Capital Theatre Trust and G&T Productions – the same companies who’ve just celebrated a sold out season of Wicked and last year’s Les Miserables – WE WILL ROCK YOU will again offer audiences a world-class theatrical experience.
This amazing production endorsed by Queen’s own Roger Taylor and Brian May, will premiere at the St James Theatre, Wellington, on 15 August – 3 September.
First premiering at London’s Dominion Theatre in 2002, WE WILL ROCK YOU was seen by six million people over 4600 performances during an astonishing 12-year run, becoming one of the most successful musicals in West End history and the longest runner at the Dominion by a margin of nine years. It also found unprecedented popularity around the world, playing to a global audience of 20 million across 28 countries.
WE WILL ROCK YOU tells the story of a globalized future without musical instruments. A handful of rock rebels, the Bohemians, fight against the all-powerful Globalsoft company and its boss, the Killer Queen; they fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of the age of rock. Scaramouche and Galileo, two young outsiders, cannot come to terms with the bleak conformist reality. They join the Bohemians and embark on the search to find the unlimited power of freedom, love and rock!
