The show must go on.

Get ready for some Killer Queen! Ballarat Lyric Theatre company, yes, the same company known for putting on productions like CATS, Jesus Christ Superstar and Les Miserables is taking to the stage once again this July to bring us We Will Rock You, Ben Elton’s smash hit musical enjoyed by over sixteen million theatregoers around the world!

Hilarious, moving and energetic, We Will Rock You follows Galileo and Scaramouche as they break free from a post-apocalyptic world under pressure from a dastardly corporation that has banned rock music and instruments alike. The production features all your favourite Queen tracks, including ‘Somebody to Love’, ‘We are the Champions’ and of course, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. The talented cast and crew is bringing their A-Game for this one and is sure to give you something to love.

Ballarat Lyric Theatre is an amateur production company with a goal of nurturing, developing and promoting talent whilst cultivating an appreciation and enjoyment for theatrical art. We Will Rock You is being helmed by the directing talents of Stephen Armati with music direction by Jane Nice, choreography from Kathrine Armati and choral direction by Kristiana Withers.

We Will Rock You will be running at Her Majesty’s Ballarat from July 15-25, be sure to check out their website for more information.
