Landmark Community Theatre is pleased to present the rock musical, We Will Rock You, opening this Saturday, September 22nd, at the historic Thomaston Opera House. Based on the music of rock band, Queen, We Will Rock You tells the story 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 is all but unknown. With more than 24 of Queen's biggest hits, including "We Will Rock You," "Somebody to Love," "Another One Bites the Dust," and "Bohemian Rhapsody," this musical reflects the scale and spectacle that earned the band its pinnacle position in rock history.
Under the direction and choreography of Foster Evans Reese, with music direction by Sean Lewis, Meric Martin (Plainville) and Brittany Mulcahy (Terryville) star as Galileo and Scaramouche respectively. Galileo and Scaramouche are both outcasts; Galileo hearing lyrics of long lost rock songs in his head and Scaramouche chastised by her peers for her looks. Together they escape the conforms of mainstream society, under the rule of musical tyrant Killer Queen, played by Leah Juliett, and discover their destiny. Supporting cast includes Ed Bassett, Robert Melendez, Erica Blasko, Colin Cummings, Rhiannon Carta, Aric Martin, Malie Louise Grasmere, Amanda Gross, Lilly McGrath, Galvin Brayton, Zachary Cote, Laura Busk, Christine Mitchell-Robinson, Susan Patrick, Nicholas Petrorazio, and Destiny Whitten. See why the legendary music of Queen has sustained itself through multiple generations of rock lovers.
We Will Rock You runs September 22, 28, 29, October 5, 6 at 8pm and September 23, 30, October 7 at 2pm.
