We Will Rock You Auditions News

 

Congratulations to Kai Dameral, Matt Syers, Josh Goodwin, Ben Elliot, Emily Isaac, Heather Coles and Mollie Pilling who were successful last Wednesday in securing principal parts in our next major production: We Will Rock You!

The Performing Arts department were delighted to have so many very talented young students who put themselves forward to audition for lead roles in front of staff and other students. This was probably one of the most impressive set of auditions I’ve been lucky enough to witness and one of the most difficult to cast. Staff took several hours before managing to come to a consensus over who to cast the 6 principal parts to. Every student that took part did a terrific job and deserve praise for their professionalism, skills and courage. All those that auditioned will be given named parts and roles within the show.

Now the hard work begins! All students, actors, dancers, singers will be required every Friday and Wednesday after school from 3.30pm to 5.30pm with additional commitments for our principals on Thursdays.

We look forward to one of our most exciting productions to date.

Good luck to everyone involved.

 

We Will Rock You - Audition Material

Plot:

The time is the future, in a place that was once called Earth. Globalisation is complete.

Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It’s a safe, happy, Ga Ga world. Unless you’re a rebel. Unless you want to Rock. On iPlanet all the musical instruments are banned. The Company Computers generate tunes and everybody downloads them. It is an age of Boy Bands and of Girl Bands. Of Boy and Girl Bands. Of Girl Bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway. Nothing is left to chance, hits are scheduled years in advance.

But Resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming cities, down in the lower depths live the Bohemians. Rebels who believe that there was once a Golden Age when the kids formed their own bands and write their own songs. They call that time, The Rhapsody.

Legend persists that somewhere on iPlanet instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep in rock. The Bohemians need a hero to find this axe and draw it from stone. Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man?

But the Ga Ga Cops are also looking for Galileo and if they get him first they will surely drag him before the Killer Queen and consign him to Oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rhye. Who is Galileo? Where is the Hairy One’s lost axe? Where is the place of living rock?

 

 

Commander Khashoggi:

Khashoggi is the leader of the Ga Ga Cops, and is the Killer Queen's general dogsbody. He arrests Pop, Galileo, Scaramouche, Britney and Meat in the musical, but is ultimately brainwashed himself when Galileo and Scaramouche manage to escape from the Heartbreak Hotel.

 

Seven Seas of Rhye

Fear me you lords and lady preachers

I descend upon your Earth from the skies

I command your very souls you unbelievers

Bring before me what is mine

The seven seas of Rhye

Can you hear me you peers and privvy councillors

(Ah)

I stand before you naked to the eyes

(Ah)

I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust

(Ah)

I swear that you'll be mine

The seven seas of Rhye

Sister I live and I lie for you

Mister do and I'll die

You are mine and I possess you belong to you forever ahh!

(forever ever ever)

Storm the master marathon and I'll fly through

By flash and thunder fire and I'll survive

(I'll survive, I'll survive)

Then I'll defy the lords of nature and come out alive

(I'll survive, I'll survive,I'll survive, I'll survive)

Then I'll get you

Be gone with you shod and shady senators

Give out the good leave out the bad evil cries

I challenge the mighty Titan and his troubadours

And with a smile

I'll take you to the seven seas of Rhye

It is violent and nasty. As the song progresses the

Bohemians fight less and less and instead they twitch and

writhe like automatons. By the end of the song the

Bohemians have been completely subdued by the helmets, they

hang limply in their laser cages like puppets on lifeless

strings.

Now as the song turns to the last bit, the "Do Like to Be

Beside the Seaside" bit, the cops are gone leaving only the

pathetic Bohemians hanging in their cages limply singing.

 

The Killer Queen:

The Killer Queen is the head of the Globalsoft Corporation. With Khashoggi, she ensures that all music is banned, and anyone who breaks this ban is arrested and brainwashed. When Galileo discovers the lost instruments at Wembley Stadium, she is vaporised by the Power Of Rock.

 

Play The Game

Open your mind and let me step inside

Rest your weary head and let your heart decide

It's so easy when you know the rules

(It's so easy)

It's so easy all you have do

(It's so easy)

Is fall in love

Play the game

(Play the game)

Everybody play the game of love yeah

(Everybody play the game)

When you're feeling down and your resistance is low

Take a cyber shopping trip and let yourself go

(Let yourself go)

Give me your life

(Give me your life)

don't play hard to get

It's a free world, all you have to do

(It's a free world)

Is fall in love

Play the game Yeah!

(Play the game)

Everybody play the game

(Everybody play the game)

Of love ooh yeah

(Of love)

My game of love has just begun

Love runs from my head down to your toes

(Love runs from my head down to your toes)

My love is pumping through your veins

(Play the game)

Driving you insane Oh

(Come come come come)

Play the game

Play the game

Play the game

KILLER QUEEN AND THE YUPPIES

Play the game

(Instrumental)

Give me your life, don't play hard to get

It's a free, free world, all you have to do

Is fall in love yeah

(Play the game), everybody play my game

KILLER QUEEN

Of love, of love

Love, of love, of love

At the end of this corporate love fest the super yuppies

all applaud.

At this moment of camp, semi fascistic triumph for Killer

Queen the Globalsoft board meeting is plunged into

darkness.....

 

 

Galileo Figaro:

Galileo is arrested by Khashoggi for singing, and is taken to the hospital, where he meets Scaramouche. He tells her that he hears song lyrics in normal life and in his dreams. Later, they meet Britney and Meat, which ultimately leads them to meet Pop, who helps them to rediscover the lost musical instruments.

 

I Want to break free (male)

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu4hcHrotZs&index=3&list=PLIodlBTw_S0lS8Ar3xgsV8PNtZ1Gh8Ipy

 

I want break free. I want to break free

I want to break free from your lies your so self satisfied

I don't need you

I've got to break free

God knows. God knows I want to break free

I've fallen in love

I've fallen in love for the first time

In love with a world that's for real!

I've fallen love

God knows. God knows I've fallen in love

It's strange but it's true - hey!

I know I'm different there's so much I have to do

But I have to be sure. When I walk out that door

Oh how I want to be free baby

Oh how I have to be free

Oh how I want to break free!

During the instrumental break while Galileo writhes in

tormented anguish.

Galileo sings on.

This existence is wrong

I can't get used to living without, living without,

living without Hope

It's all a lie

I don't want to live alone

But God knows. Got to make it on my own

So people can't you see

God knows I've got to

God knows I need to

God knows I want to break free

 

 

Scaramouche:

Scaramouche is arrested for singing and meets Galileo in hospital. Together, they meet Britney and Meat, then Pop, who helps them to rediscover the lost musical instruments.

 

Somebody to Love
