Summerset will open its 54th season with ‘We Will Rock You’

Summerset Theatre will open its 54th season with “We Will Rock You the Musical,” by Queen and Ben Elton.
The show, to play at the Frank W. Bridges Theatre on the campus of Riverland Community College, will begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21.
Featuring more than 20 hit Queen songs including “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody To Love,” “We Are the Champions,” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Will Rock You” follows two revolutionaries as they try to save rock ‘n’ roll in a post-apocalyptic world where musical instruments are banned from the planet.
In an age where algorithms predict our every preference, “We Will Rock You,” is a unique and wild musical for our time: a fist-pumping, foot-stomping anthem to individuality.
“We are very excited to finally produce this show, which was originally planned for the summer of 2020,” said director Randal J. Forster. “We realize more than ever just how much we need theater in our lives.”
