To the music of Queen, we will Rock You tells the story of a world where rock music is banned under the control of the tyrant Killer Queen and the powerful Globalsoft Corporation, as a group of young bohemians struggle to restore freedom, freedom of thought, love and rock music.

The production features some of Queen’s hits including Killer Queen, We Are The Champions, I Want To Break Free, Radio Gaga, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody and Somebody to Love.
