Exciting news on the musical theatre horizon!
A brand-new production and major extensive world tour of Queen and Ben Elton’s multi-award-winning rock musical We Will Rock You will embark next year at Cape Town’s Artscape Theatre Centre on Saturday, 05 September 2020 for a five-week season ending on 04 October 2020. Thereafter the show opens at Montecasino’s Teatro, Johannesburg from Saturday, 10 October to Sunday, 22 November 2020 before setting sail on the ‘Seven Seas of Rhye’ touring Asia and Europe in 2020 and 2021. Tickets are on sale at Computicket.
A 20% Early Bird special discount is available for the month of December 2019 across all ticket prices valid for the first Wednesday and Thursday performances in both cities i.e. 9 and 10 September at Artscape and 14 and 15 October 2020 at Montecasino. The “Extra Early Bird” special offer does not apply to any other show discount.
The musical is produced by SA promoter, Showtime Management in conjunction with Selladoor Worldwide, Carlos Candal, Gavin Kalin Productions and Limelight Productions. “Showtime Management is excited to be involved in a new partnership with international producers to bring the new generation We Will Rock You hit stage production to this country in 2020 before going on a world tour. We have successfully produced a number of Broadway and West End hits in South Africa featuring SA talent that have gone on to critical acclaim in various overseas territories. Revisiting We Will Rock You as an originating partner with our new international partners on this new look production is a proud milestone for Showtime.” says Hazel Feldman. Showtime Management previously staged We Will Rock You in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban in 2005 and 2006 to rave reviews and nightly standing ovations. Following sold-out seasons in South Africa, the show then enjoyed a highly successful tour to New Zealand and Korea in 2007.
Telling the story of a group of bohemians in a dystopian future and featuring 24 of Queen’s greatest hits, We Will Rock You will be directed and choreographed by Olivier Award nominee Nick Winston (Annie, Loserville, Waiting for Godot). The production will feature set design by Tom Rogers, costume design by Hayley Grindle, lighting by Tim Mitchell and sound by Ben Harrison. We Will Rock You has a combined South African and international creative team. Full casting and further dates and venues to be announced in due course.
Galileo, Scaramoche and Killer Queen are a few of the leading characters who will take audiences on a journey into the future. South Africa, are you ready to rock in 2020?
