In celebration of the extension, the producers announced that tickets for all performances will be $28, except for Tuesday evenings, which are only $20.
We Will Rock You is the new Ben Elton-penned musical using the songs of Queen. Elton also directs. It moved to the Panasonic after playing 61 weeks at the Canon Theatre.
The all-Canadian cast features Yvan Pedneault as Galileo, Breanne Arrigo as Scaramouche, Alana Bridgewater (Menopause Out Loud!) as the Killer Queen, Camilla Scott (Mamma Mia!, Crazy For You) as Khashoggi, Jack Langedijk (Kiss of the Spiderwoman, A Streetcar Named Desire) as Pop, Sterling Jarvis (Disney's The Lion King) as Duff and Valerie Stanois as Oz.
"Set 300 years in the future, in a time when live music is banned on earth, We Will Rock You is about rebellious kids, fighting the all-powerful Globalsoft Corporation that controls their lives and feeds them a diet of synthesized pop," according to the producers. "Could the young Galileo and Scaramouche be the heroes needed who will help them 'break free' of their chains to rediscover themselves and live music?"
With Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors, the show features 32 of Queen's greatest hits. Producers are David Mirvish and The Kimsa Group, in association with Queen Theatrical Productions, Phil McIntyre Entertainment and Tribeca Theatrical Productions.
We Will Rock You is now in its sixth sell-out year in London, and has been seen in Australia, Spain, Russia, South Africa, Switzerland, Germany, Japan and Spain.
