With a story by Ben Elton and music by rock legends, Queen.
The Richland Rock Orchestra enters its Sixth Season as a cutting edge ensemble. Previous performances have been renditions of its Bittersweet Symphony show in which the group has covered over 100 rock, pop, blues, and indie hit songs. This year, the group will bring a second Richland High School Musical to our audiences as they become the band for the rock musical We Will Rock You. With special permission from Theatrical Rights Worldwide, strings will be part of the band for this show for a totally unique presentation. The rock orchestra will be joined on stage by an entire cast of our talented high school actors to round out the entire musical experience.
Featuring more than 20 hit Queen songs, We Will Rock You follows two revolutionaries as they try to save Rock in a post apocalyptic world. Featuring the songs “Another One Bites the Dust”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Killer Queen”, “We Will Rock You”, “Somebody To Love”, “We Are the Champions”, “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and many more. After a victorious 12-year reign and having rocked over 7 million people in a record-breaking run, We Will Rock You played it’s final West End performance on May 31, 2014 and achieved the distinction of becoming the longest-running show ever at London’s Dominion Theatre. We Will Rock You has been performed in 28 countries around the globe and seen by more than 16 million people.
