Or that much of what we thought was science fiction in the script back then has turned into science fact! I guess Queen were always ahead of the game! I've directed this show all over the world and I can't wait to bring it home to the UK with a brand new production and a fabulous cast of young Bohemians, most of whom were rocking in their cradles when this adventure first began." 

The musical features songs from Queen's back catalogue including "We Are The Champions", "Radio Ga Ga", "I Want To Break Free", "Somebody To Love", "Killer Queen", "Don't Stop Me Now", "Under Pressure", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Another One Bites The Dust" and "We Will Rock You".   It opens in Portsmouth on 7th February 2022 with tickets are on sale belowand a cast including Ian McIntosh/ Galileo, Elena Skye/Scaramouche, Jenny O'Leary /Killer Queen and Adam Strong/Khashoggi with Michael Mckell as Buddy, Martina Ciabatti Mennell as Oz and David Michael Johnson as Brit.The ensemble includes Laura Bird, Kate Leiper, Joanne Harper, Anna Davey, Edward Leigh, Spin, Karen Walker, David Muscat, Damien Walsh, Laura Ava-Scott, Victoria Collins, Joseph Connor, Louis Clarke-Clare and Jacob Fearey.   Further creatives <re to be announced
