WATCH - Vision Arts Studios in Haverfordwest is ringing to the music of Queen, as young performers rehearse for Friday and Saturday’s shows.
They are taking part in this year’s Summer Youth Project rehearse the sublime We Will Rock You (Young@Part), which is staged at the Boulevard Theatre, Milford Haven on Friday and Saturday, August 11 and 12, 2023.
The show has been especially created for young performers, but is as packed with all the evergreen Queen classics that you’d expect.
Audiences will meet Galileo Figario; Scaramouche and the Killer Queen - and the rest of the inhabitants of the much-loved musical, written by Ben Elton and featuring music by Queen.
The show will be performed on Friday and Saturday of this week at Boulevard Theatre, Milford Haven and is on track to be another sellout for the young performers at Vision Arts.
Directed by Vision’s Creative Director Drew Baker, musical direction by Clive Raymond and choreography by Katy Thomas, the show is set to be another triumph.
“One of the joys of this production is introducing a new generation to the music of Queen - and seeing them embrace it fully.
“The songs are not your usual pop songs, they can be tricky - which is really stretching and developing the skills of the young people, but they are working incredibly hard and having a wonderful time.
“One of the best things about my job is bringing young people from different backgrounds and of different ages together to collaborate on a project - the whole is always so much more than the sum of the individual parts - because they demonstrate such great teamwork and support each other.
“This is going to be such an amazing show… you’ll be sorry if you don’t get to see it!”
