AUDITION NOTICE: "We Will Rock You" by Coastal Theatre Collective

About "We Will Rock You"

Based on the music of Queen, "We Will Rock You" is set in a futuristic, corporate world 300 years from now. The story follows Galileo, a young outsider who dreams of breaking free from societal constraints.
