Coláiste Iósaef present We Will Rock You musical



We Will Rock You musical is coming to Limerick this March. We Will Rock You by Coláiste Iósaef Transition year students in Kilmallock, is being shown in the Lime Tree theatre.

The We Will Rock You musical, features some of Queen’s greatest hits, including Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust, I Want to Break Free and the big crowd pleaser and opening number Radio Ga Ga. The performance is set on a futurist adventure in a time when free exchange of thought, fashion and live music is banned. Individuality is unheard of, everybody dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden and rock music is all but the unknown. Patsy Punch and Jordan Heffernan take the lead playing Galileo and Scaramouche with supporting roles played by Leia Hayes, David O’Connor, Colm Clery, Méabh O’Hara and an ensemble of students from Coláiste Iósaef. The kids need a hero who can assist them in finding themselves and the outlawed live music.

Principal of Coláiste Iósaef, Seán Twomey spoke about the musical, “Well we’re taking a big step for us moving into what is a fantastic venue in The Lime Tree and one of the reasons is to allow our students to showcase their talents on a grand scale. Our hope is parents, students and past students will come out to support us as it promises to be a fantastic family night out. We are blessed with a very talented group of Transition Year students and I think they will light up the stage.”
