'HCC really did ROCK!'
We Will Rock You Review
Every Christmas, Heathfield Community College stages perhaps the biggest production of the school year - the Christmas musical, progressively getting bigger and better.
This was the year that students of 2013 jumped 3000 years into the future, as the school portrayed their own version of the West End hit "We Will Rock You", and the end result produced two and half hours of pure entertainment and fun, with the audience laughing, clapping and singing along to all the hits from Queen.
For the cast, attempting to mimic the late Freddie Mercury was always going to be a challenge- but the main cast should feel proud of their own take on the legendary band’s greatest songs such as 'Radio GaGa’, ‘We Will Rock You', and of course the ever-popular 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
Whilst the main cast were the stars of the show, I believe that everyone involved this year, from Galileo to all the GaGa kids should feel proud of their energetic performances.
But the spotlight cannot be shone on the cast alone -the orchestra who played with faultless synchronicity and the technical team behind the scenes brought the stage to life with prompt lighting and musical direction.
The story of ‘We Will Rock You’ followed Galileo (Jake Marchant) – also referred to as the 'Dreamer' - who frequently had visions of past songs in a time when live music was forbidden.
Captured by the evil Khashoggi (Ethan Todd) and sent to the dungeons, our protagonist met another rebel of the iPlanet: Scaramouche (Zoe Holmes).
Together, with the help of Brit (Sam Benians) and Meat (Hattie Chapman), the team embarked on a journey to the Seven Seas of Rye in the hunt for the legendary Guitar to defeat Killer Queen (Hayley Huggett- see right) and restore rock music to the world.
“It went smashingly! The audience were so responsive and everyone gave 101.5%.
Comments from the audience flying around the hall of this year’s fun production stated, “Best one yet!” and “Absolutely fantastic, HCC really did rock!”
The show was a sell out for both Thursday and Friday performances, emphasising the excitement and popularity of the festive musical feast Heathfield Community College puts on each year- excelling year in, year out.
