The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts Hemel and St Albans are joining forces with The Alban Arena and opening its doors to bring a new Summer Show Spectacular in 2017, open to everyone.

The brand new production will be We Will Rock You (School edition). The auditions will be open to all children aged seven to 18 years.

Based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton, the musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown.

Featuring songs like We Will Rock You, Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Gaga and We Are The Champions, this is a non-stop rock concert of a show for the whole family.

The production and cast will be rehearsed over a two week intensive process from Monday, July 31, 2017, with performances on August 12 and 13.

Auditions will take place at The Alban Arena on Saturday, January 14, 2017.
