The Empire Theatres are thrilled to announce an incredibly talented lineup of performers who will take on the legendary music of Queen in the 2022 blockbuster jukebox musical, We Will Rock You.
This highly energetic rock and roll musical featuring hits including Killer Queen, Another One Bites the Dust, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Somebody to Love, Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You will be performed across six shows from Friday March 18- Saturday March 26.
After it’s initial popularity, an extra row of premium seats have been released for each performance of We Will Rock You and are still available to purchase now.
Set in a dystopian future where globalization and consumerism rules all and resistance is growing, We Will Rock You follows young rebels Galileo and Scaramouche as they risk everything to rediscover rock in a world where musical instruments are banned.

Impressive young performer Lauren Baryla, whose previous credits include Jane in the Empire Theatres Mary Poppins (2015) takes the stage as rebel Oz and Jacob Krog (Galileo – Pittsworth Amateur Theatrical Society’s We Will Rock You 2021) takes his place alongside her as fellow rebel Brit.
