The UK jukebox musical We Will Rock You, which features 24 of Queen’s biggest hits, including Killer Queen, Under Pressure, We Are the Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want to Break Free, Don’t Stop Me Now, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust, and, of course, We Will Rock You, with a book by Ben Elton, will be coming to Manila this October.
GMG Productions and Selladoor Worldwide are set to stage the production from October 27 to November 20, 2022, with shows on Tuesdays to Fridays at 8:00pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00 pm and 7:00pm, at the newly constructed Samsung Performing Arts Theatre located in Circuit Makati.
We Will Rock You follows two revolutionaries as they try to save rock n roll in a post-apocalyptic world. In an age where algorithms predict our every preference, We Will Rock You is a musical for our time: a fist-pumping, foot-stomping anthem to individuality.
This brand new, reimagined production directed and choreographed by Olivier Award nominee Nick Winston is kicking off a multi-year international tour, and audiences in the Philippines will be the first people in the world to witness it.
“The original production has been seen by over 16 million people worldwide. We can’t think of a better title to come back with after such a long intermission – and there is no better place to launch the show than the Philippines. We know Filipino audiences love Queen and Queen music,” shares GMG Productions CEO and We Will Rock You producer Carlos Candal.
“We are incredibly excited to premiere the show in Manila and for us to play host to all the international producers visiting from around the world.” Mr. Candal continues, “…we want to put the Philippines on the map as a hub for theatrical productions. We know the Philippines has the talent and now we are spoilt for choice when it comes to venues! It feels like things are falling into place. ”
We Will Rock You is produced by Selladoor Worldwide, Carlos Candal, Gavin Kalin Productions, Limelight Productions and ShowTime Management South Africa.
Joining Winston in the creative team are Mark Crossland (musical supervisor), Ryan Lee Seager (associate director), Tom Rogers (set designer), Douglas O’Connell (video designer), Ben Harrison (sound designer), Sarah Mercade (costume designer), and Megan Rarity (costume supervisor).
