We Will Rock You Opening Night Coverage
Welcome to Digital Hit's coverage of the Toronto opening night of Queen and Ben Elton's We Will Rock You.
If you thought you heard a jet taking off from Toronto’s Canon Theatre on the night of April 10th, 2007, don’t panic: it was just the roar of the audience as they greeted Queen and Ben Elton’s musical We Will Rock You.
The cast stars Yvan Pedneault as Galileo, Erica Peck as Scaramouche, Alana Bridgewater as the Killer Queen, Evan Buliung as her right-hand man, Khashoggi, Jack Langedijk as the hippy librarian, Pop, Rockstar:INXS' Suzie McNeil as Oz and Sterling Jarvis as Britney.
The show also stars Danny Balkwill and Jewelle Blackman and an ensemble cast comprised of Matt Alfano, Breanne Arrigo, Adam Bolton, Nicole Bourgeois, Lindsay Croxall, Peter Deiwick, Kelly-Ann Evans, Kelly Fletcher, Brittany Gray, Deidrea Halley, Bryan Hindle, Melanie McInenly, Lindsay Owen Pierre, Jesse Robb, Talia Schlanger, Jason Sermonia, Valerie Stanois, Sam Strasfeld, Darren Voros and Scott Walters.
We photographed the whole night, from the red carpet arrivals and curtain call all the way to the big night’s opening party. We were also the only outlet backstage as the show’s creators and cast hugged and cheered and posed for a group photo. For a look at the big night, take a look at our photos.
