The musical tells the story of a dystopian world where the Killer Queen and her GaGa Police control all aspects of modern life, including the music that people can listen to. A group of rebels known as ‘Bohemians’ hark back to a time called ‘Rhapsody’ where young people wrote and performed their own songs. Legend has it that there is an underground store of musical instruments and the Bohemians are in a race against the GaGa Police to find the hero ‘Galileo’ who can lead them to Brian May’s fabled guitar.

The cast is drawn from students from Years 10 to 13 from both Marling and Stroud High schools. The musical will be performed at Stroud High School at 6.30pm on 28 February, 1st and 2nd March.

Jessica Ashley, Head of Drama at Marling School, said: “The students have been working very hard both on stage and behind the scenes.  They are doing everything from acting to stage management to musical accompaniment.

They have had great fun learning the script and amazing songs and I hope that the local community will come along to support them.”

Chloe Castleton, Drama Teacher at Stroud High School, said: "It is a very exciting year for school productions at Marling and Stroud High as the two schools haven't done a joint show since 'Back to the 80s' in 2013!

The cast, crew and band have been Queen-mad since September and it is time to ROCK the audience!"

 

The story is told against a backdrop of rocking Queen tracks including Radio GaGa; Bohemian Rhapsody; Hammer to Fall; Another One Bites the Dust, It’s a Kind of Magic and We Are The Champions.

Dr Stuart Wilson, Headteacher of Marling School, said: “I am very excited about seeing the musical as I am a big fan of Queen’s music and will be interested to see how the students interpret these classic songs.”

Tickets are priced at £5 and are available to buy from Marling and Stroud High school receptions from today.
