MUDDS Musical – ‘We Will Rock You’ Apr 26, 27, 28, May 3

Sometimes there’s absolutely nothing better than a jukebox musical – a show made up of hit songs from a popular music group. There’s a special kind of excitement and energy created when the entire audience knows every word and anticipate each and every song that we grew up with on the radio. The Mississippi Mudds have started working on their spring production, ‘We Will Rock You’ – the jukebox musical with each of its big numbers a song by the rock group, Queen. It’s guaranteed to blow your mind.
“She’s a killer queen. Gunpowder, gelatine, dynamite with a laser beam. Guaranteed to blow your mind. Anytime.” ~Killer Queen/Freddie Mercury (1974)

We Will Rock You is a story with an earnest message about the importance of individuality, creativity, and music. A cast of over thirty actors, singers, and dancers are currently learning the textured harmonies, the choreography, and the script, which is filled with humour and pop culture references. They are having a good time. They are having a ball.
“Don’t stop me now, I’m having such a good time, I’m having a ball.” ~Don’t Stop Me Now/Freddie Mercury (1978)

Bringing We Will Rock You to Carleton Place is thrilling. It’s rock and roll. And rock and roll is all about individuality and creativity.
