Upcoming Events & Productions

About We Will Rock You:

Since 2002 over 16 million theatregoers in 28 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).

The musical takes place in a future age on a planet once called Earth, now the Iplanet, controlled by the mighty corporation Globalsoft and headed by the evil Killer Queen and her side kick, Khashoggi. Rock music is unheard, and all musical instruments are banned. The hope of breaking free rests with an unlikely resistance-an alliance of rebel Bohemians.

Elton fashioned this hilarious futurist comedy around more than 24 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’.

I went to see We Will Rock You with my family. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I had no idea Albany had so many talented people. Amazing singing, dancing and music. Beautiful costumes. Great story with some very funny comedy. My 11-year-old enjoyed it so much she asked if she could come back tomorrow to watch it again. Thank you, I had a great time.

Last night’s Mamma Mia was incredible. I sat transfixed to the stage for the whole show. The talent of the performers/ musicians and production team was beyond my expectations of a country town show. You all deserve the applause you received. Thank you for a wonderful night 😊😊😊😊
