Bourne Grammar School

We Will Rock You

Ben Elton's hit musical We Will Rock You, was performed to full houses 7-10 March as BGS students delivered the school's version of this popular musical, written to pay homage to the music of Queen.

The role of Scaramouche was shared between Phoebe Cresswell and Lizzie Emery, both bringing their own unique style of humour and delivering powerful vocals in the portrayal of this feisty character with attitude.

Galileo, the reluctant hero who tries to make sense of the long forgotten music which he hears in his dreams, was played with conviction and perfect comic timing by Harry Jervis. The outrageous role of Killer Queen was delivered with suitable glitz and glamour by Alice Okubadejo and Tom Marshall- Andrews was uncomfortably convincing as the intimidating leader of the super yuppies - Khashoggi. Vicky Wagner, playing the role of Meat, and Dominic Darmanin as Britney Spears, had the audience rocking in their seats as they delivered their competent rendition of We Want It All. Dressed in a tie dye T-shirt, faded denims and original 70's afghan, Rory Bluff brought humour, likeability and warmth  to the role of the aging hippy Pop.

The lead characters were supported by many other cast members including the Bohemians who  demonstrated their own individuality, both in their wayward style of dress, and unique personalities.

A team of over 30 dancers supported the main cast, delivering  their routines with both enthusiasm and precision. These beautifully perfected routines were put together by Debbie Walker of the Welland School of Dance and was a personal triumph for Debbie and measure of her endurance and commitment  as she tutored the dancers at the same time as receiving chemotherapy treatment.
