BES Rocks Audiences With Queen Spectacular

Harry Lewis and Maisie James-Owen who delivered some incredible vocal performances

Bridgnorth Endowed’s stage production of ‘We Will Rock You’ was a triumph from start to finish as local audiences were treated to a spectacular show during a three-night run at the leisure centre last week.

Hailed as one of the most popular and well-loved ‘jukebox’ musicals on the West End, the talented cast delivered everything you could have hoped for from the Queen classic and more.

The futuristic story, set in a post-apocalyptic world, follows young outsider, Galileo (Harry Lewis), and sharp-witted rebel, Scaramouche (Maisie James-Owen), as they try to restore rock ‘n’ roll to “the iPlanet”.

However, the pair run into trouble in the form of Killer Queen (Freya Cresswell) and her right-hand man, Khashoggi (Henry Rhodes), who bring pantomime-evil in bucket-loads.

With Queen’s biggest hits at the heart of the show, the leading cast members produced many truly outstanding musical performances, including some superb solos and highly-emotional duets.

Audiences refused to be left out and joined in all the way through, singing and clapping along to favourites such as “Radio Ga Ga,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Ambitious staging featured sensational lighting effects and a huge 20-foot screen that beamed custom-designed graphics, created by former student, Dan Bradley.

Director, Mrs Taylor, and her experienced production team pulled out all the stops to put on a big show after a three-year break and certainly didn’t disappoint.

Mrs Taylor comments: “I couldn’t be prouder of everyone who took part in our production of We Will Rock You, both on stage and behind the scenes. We all worked incredibly hard to bring the annual show back and are already looking forward to the next one.”
