WE WILL ROCK YOU. And you can win!


Are you ready to rock? The award-winning rock musical We Will Rock You is, trust us, going to blow your mind!

It’s a high energy major extravaganza that eventually turns into a rock concert, and will appeal to everyone from cool teens and young adults to rockers from the 70s, 80s and 90s.

As part of a major world tour, which began in Manila in the Philippines in October last year, this Queen and Ben Elton brand-new production has just opened at Montecasino’s Teatro … and has received nothing but rave reviews.

We Will Rock You is not a tribute show, nor does it tell the story of Queen or the legendary Freddie Mercury. Instead, it’s a massive, full scale, new vision musical theatre production with its own storyline set to the music of two dozen of Queen’s most popular hits …  a Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Killer Queen, the worldwide favourites We are the Champions and Bohemian Rhapsody, and, obviously, We Will Rock You. The show is about a group of bohemians in a dystopian future without musical instruments. A handful of rock rebels, the Bohemians, together with society misfits Scaramouche and Galileo, embark on the search to find the unlimited power of freedom, love and the rebirth of the age of rock.

With an all-South African highly-talented cast and crew, there’s a combination of established, well-known performers and fresh new talent, making their musical theatre debut. Nicolette Fernandes (The Producers, Spring Awakening, URINETOWN! Sister Act) plays the leading role of the ‘sarcastic, cynical’ Scaramouche alongside Stuart Brown (How To Date Like A F*@#&%! Grownup – A Musical Comedy (Workshop Version), Defending The Gay Man) as Galileo, the dreamer who hears strange words in his head.  Stage and screen actress, singer and dancer Londiwe Dhlomo plays the villain Killer Queen who rules Planet Mall with an iron fist, assisted by her second in command, Khashoggi, played by award-winning film, television and stage actor Craig Urbani (Chicago The Musical, Rocky Horror, Legacy, Blitzpatrolli).  Tiaan Rautenbach (Jesus Christ Superstar, Binnelanders, Aspoestertjie) plays the role of Buddy who tries to figure out the ‘exact date the music died’.  International and local musical theatre performer as well as television and feature film actor, Richard Gau (Calling Us Home, Evita, PRIME – Netflix Original) plays Brit, alongside Danelle Cronje (Doringrosie: Die Slapende Skone, Seussical, Barely Legal Showtunes) in the role of Oz.  Performing on stage, alongside the seven leads is a twenty strong highly talented ensemble who perform to the six piece live band.

It’s a show you’ll kick yourself for not seeing … and it’s only on at Montecasino until April 16, when it’ll move down to Cape Town. Shows are on Tuesday to Friday at 8pm, with two shows on a Saturday (3pm and 8pm) and Sunday (2pm and 6pm). Tickets cost from R200 to R500, with specials from R100 on Tuesdays.
