We Will Rock You!

14th - 17th February 2022

Rock music was certainly revived across four nights of fantastic performances with the audiences transported into the future, where people live their lives online under the Globalsoft Corporation.

There was a wonderful display of talent from all performers in both casts – Thunderbolts and Lightning: the singers, actors, dancers and the musicians in the band. This was our first production with a double cast and it was such a joy to see how different actors approached the same character. For a school production, the technical side of the performance was also very ambitious, extremely professional, and impressive overall.  This included the sound, lighting, staging, transitions between sets and the digital imagery.

We are incredibly proud of the huge number of young people involved in the production from the actors to the band to the dancers to the backstage team to the costume and prop makers and the assistant directors. 

Whilst the pandemic has had a devastating impact on the creative arts industry, the show was definitely worth the two-year wait and was a fabulous tribute to Queen, as well as a reminder of the importance of music and the power of live performance.
