“Inside my heart is breaking; my makeup may be flaking but my smile, still, stays on …..The show must go on!” The lyrics of the popular Queen song, “The Show Must Go On” have never been more relevant. The resulting challenges from the Covid-19 pandemic affects so many industries across the globe, including show business.
The health and safety of our WE WILL ROCK YOU audiences, cast members and everyone involved in the production is of great importance and concern to SA producer Showtime Management, international partner Selladoor Worldwide and the show venues, Montecasino and Artscape. Current government legislation allows for a total audience to 50 persons and 15 crew and performers which, is unfortunately impractical and not financially viable.
Therefore, WE WILL ROCK YOU is regretfully postponed to 2021, pending future restrictions and legislation. “We remain positive and optimistic that the show will go on,” says producer, Hazel Feldman of Showtime Management. We Will Rock you is now scheduled to open Montecasino’s Teatro, Johannesburg from Friday, 23 July thereafter moving to Cape Town’s Artscape Theatre Centre from Friday, 03 September 2021. Tickets are on sale only at Computicket.
A 20% Early Bird special discount is available for the months of September and October 2020 across all ticket prices valid for the first Wednesday and Thursday performances in both cities i.e. 28 July and 29 July 2021 at Montecasino and 08 and 09 September 2021 at Artscape. The “Extra Early Bird” special offer does not apply to any other show discount.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented difficult time. We can’t wait to return to the theatre and to rockin’ South Africa with the iconic, new generation WE WILL ROCK YOU. The show must go on! Full casting to be announced in due course.
