REMINDER - Press Release: Mel C To Perform in WWRY For Children In Need
BBC Children in Need and POP Goes the Musical 2011 have teamed up with one of the most recognized singers in the world, Mel C to perform a unique collaboration with cast members from the award-winning West End musical We Will Rock You.
On 13 September, Mel C will ascend onto the stage following the curtain call to give the audience an evening to remember by singing the highly charged ‘We Are the Champions’.
Based on the songs by legendary rock band Queen and named after their hit single of the same name. We Will Rock You is written by British comedian and author Ben Elton in collaboration with Queen member’s Brian May and Roger Taylor. The story takes place in a tongue-in-cheek dystopian future where originality and individualism are shunned, and a lone "Dreamer" appears who can fulfill a prophecy that will enable the return of rock 'n roll.
In August 2005, We Will Rock You officially became the longest running musical to play at the Dominion, one of the West End’s biggest theatres. Now in its tenth year, the show recently won the industry acclaimed BBC Radio 2 Olivier Audience Award 2011.
Join international singer Mel C and the cast of We Will Rock You for this once in a lifetime performance and help us raise money for BBC Children in Need.
