Annerin Productions National Tour of the critically acclaimed WE WILL ROCK YOU by ben Elton with music by Queen is now accepting video audition submissions.
TOUR DATES: September 2019 to March 2020
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: Friday, April 19th, 2019 @ 5:00pm
We Will Rock You is the story of a group of rock rebels known as Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Unsanctioned music is forbidden, and Rock ’n Roll as we know it is lost.
The team is looking to cast the following roles:
GALILEO – (Male, 20’s-early 30’s)
Vocal Range: Rock Tenor with strong Falsetto
(D Below Middle C to Bb above Middle C – Full Voice) (To E two above Middle C- Falsetto)
Is a wide-eyed misfit who hears strange song lyrics in his head. Reticent to be just another lemming to the man, an inspired Galileo breaks free of his civilian existence and goes on an adventure to find a world that’s free of mind. He’s attractive, young, sexy and rebellious; passionate, vulnerable, yet headstrong and often stubborn. But above all else, slays dragons with his power to rock! Must have comedic skills and be a solid mover.
KILLER QUEEN (African American Female, Late 20’s-early 40’s)
Vocal Range: Full Rock/Soul Voice
(E Below Middle C to E Two Above Middle C)
She’s the ruthless overlord in charge of Global Soft, the worldwide corporation which is responsible for the suppression of all live music. She lusts for more power and will stop at nothing to completely eviscerate any lingering shreds of original thought and creativity. She’s sassy, voluptuous, funny and powerful. She’s the boss. We are looking for a showstopping diva with a soul/rock voice. Must have comic chops and be a decent mover.
KHASHOGGI (African American Male, late 20’s-early 40’s)
Vocal Range: High Rock Baritone with Strong Falsetto
(D Below Middle C to A above Middle C – Full Voice) (E to two above middle C- Falsetto)
He’s Killer Queen’s top henchman, who gleefully carries out his duties of crushing the Bohemian resistance. He’s passionately compliant and almost as maniacal as his boss. He’s sinister, heartless, cruel yet suave. He’s also kind of a dick. Actor must have comic skills and be a solid mover.
(Diverse casting strongly considered, Female/Male Dancers, 20’s-early 30’s)
