This year’s show will be ‘We Will Rock You’, the musical by Queen.
The story is set 300 years in the future. Earth has been renamed “iPlanet” and is controlled by the Globalsoft Corporation. Ruling Globalsoft Corporation is the Killer Queen. On the iPlanet, mainstream conformity reigns. The Ga Ga Kids watch the same movies, listen to computer-generated music, wear the same clothes and hold the same thoughts and opinions. Musical instruments are forbidden, and rock music is unknown. In the newest graduating ‘Ga Ga’ class is black sheep, Galileo, who has dreams and hears strange words in his head, most of which are lyrics of songs long since lost. Despite his teacher’s advice, Galileo refuses to conform like the rest of his classmates. Meanwhile Killer Queen has heard of a prophecy that instruments have been hidden somewhere on the iPlanet in the “place of living rock”, and a “bright star” will show the way to them.
Is it a coincidence that Galileo hears the music?
Could it be he is the one to fulfil the prophecy?
The dates for the show are Tuesday 14th June – Friday 17th June 2016 with auditions already underway.
