During this week’s Take a Bow on Newsbook.com.mt, Coryse Borg has a chat with Luke Mercieca from FM Theatre Productions about their next production We Will Rock You.
The well-known musical features timeless songs by Queen, and well-known local and international performers in its cast, including two West End performers – Katie Paine, who will be taking on the role of the villain Killer Queen and Jordan Carr, who will play Galileo Figaro.
Based around the greatest hits of the legendary British rock band Queen and with its book by Blackadder writer, Ben Elton, We Will Rock You is one of the most popular and longest-running musicals in West End history. It has enthralled the world’s audiences across six continents with many of the band’s iconic songs including Radio Gaga, Somebody To Love, Bohemian Rhapsody and – of course – We Will Rock You.
The show is being directed by Chris Gatt, alongside vocal coach Analise Cassar, choreographer Warren Bonello and musical director Kris Spiteri. The cast will also feature Michela Agius, Edward Mercieca, David Ellul, Tezara Saliba and Francesco Nicodemo.
Performances will take place at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta on the 18th October at 8.00 pm and the 19th and 20th October at 2.30 pm and 8.00 pm.
