We Will Rock You

We Will Rock You

2018 School Production

Mr Bleakley and Ms Cumming (Production Coordinators) are excited the 2018 Lilydale High School Production will feature the Music of QUEEN!

With the help of Mr Rogers (Junior School), Ms Goode (PAC) and many other LHS staff members, students and external musicians, community companies and ex-students, we are looking forward to a fantastic show presented by Lilydale High School.

We Will Rock You (often abbreviated as WWRY) is a musical based on the songs of British rock band 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.

Performance Dates

  • Thursday 23 August – 7 pm
  • Friday 24 August – 7 pm
  • Saturday 25 August – 1.30 pm & 7 pm
