See We Will Rock You at the Hull New Theatre

'We Will Rock You' tells the story of a globalized future without musical instruments. A handful of rock rebels, the Bohemians, fight against the all-powerful Globalsoft company and its boss, the Killer Queen; they fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of the age of rock. Scaramouche and Galileo, two young outsiders, cannot come to terms with the bleak conformist reality. They join the Bohemians and embark on the search to find the unlimited power of freedom, love and Rock!

The idea for the musical came after a meeting between the actor Robert De Niro with musicians Brian May and Roger Taylor, in Venice in 1996. De Niro's daughter was a big fan of the Queen and the actor asked if the legends of rock had never thought of creating a musical based on their songs. That was the beginning of everything.

Since 2002 over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring production which is based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn). Elton fashioned this hilarious futurist comedy around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and of course, We Will Rock You.


About

Hull New Theatre is one of the UK’s leading regional touring theatres. Based in a Grade II listed building rejuvenated after a £16million refurbishment, the theatre based in Kingston-upon-Hull regularly features musicals, opera, ballet, drama and comedy, not forgetting a traditional Christmas pantomime. Hull New Theatre has been operating in some form since 1939 when it was opened as a replacement venue for the Hull Repertory Theatre Company. It survived bombing during World War II and was bought by the Whitehall Company in 1951. The arrival of television affected audience numbers, but a public backlash against a takeover bid by a bingo company in the 60s led to Hull City Council taking over the venue, a role it still fulfills to this day. Hull New Theatre closed temporarily in 2015 for a major overhaul, ready for Hull’s stint as UK City of Culture in 2017. Now well-placed for the 21st Century, the theatre is capable of staging ambitious performances across the artistic spectrum, with recent visitors to Hull including Jason Manford, the stage version of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em featuring Joe Pasquale, and Jools Holland’s band.
