The legendary hit from London's West End comes to Magnus Theatre; the first time "WWRY" has ever opened at a Canadian regional theatre!
Taking place in the distant future, the story of We Will Rock You exists predominately as a framework allowing the cast to perform covers of Queen's greatest hits.
Earth's name has been changed to Planet Mall. Everyone wears the same clothes, thinks the same thoughts and goes about in a brain-dead haze. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and Rock music is all but unknown. However, a small group of "Bohemians" struggles to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and (most of all) live music.
With the help of Buddy, an ancient hippie librarian, two Bohemians, Galileo and Scaramouche, search for Rock's Holy Grail, a special guitar in a place known as Memphis.
WWRY is Magnus' 17-18 Season Premiere!
