Forward 300 years into the future and the world is controlled by the Globalsoft Corporation. Conformity reigns. Musical instruments are outlawed, and rock music is unknown. Ruling Globalsoft Corporation and keeping citizens in check is Killer Queen and her police chief, Khashoggi. Enter young misfits Galileo and Scaramouche and a struggle begins for the right to free thought and music.

We Will Rock You (WWRY) is a musical based on the songs of British rock band, Queen and a novel by Ben Elton. Featuring from the more than 20 hit Queen songs, “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Killer Queen,” “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody To Love,” “We Are The Champions,” “Don’t Stop Me Now” and more.

At Colonel Gray Senior High School, we stage musical productions every two years, so it’s with great excitement that 2019 brings with it the chance for students to take to the stage for the experience that many rate as being amongst their best high school memories.

*Please note: This performance is a rental production and discounts offered by Confederation Centre of the Arts are not applicable.
