HOT on the heels of the Oscar-winning film Bohemian Rhapsody comes a stage show featuring the best of Queen.

Queen of Rock, which visits The Witham on Friday, May 17, takes fans on a journey through the headline hits of the band and charismatic lead singer Freddie Mercury.

In the ever-competitive Queen tribute market there is usually a frontman with a band, however, this show has a different take on the music and explores the intricate harmonies and sounds Queen were known for.

Director Dominic Creighton said: “Queen of Rock is more than just a production show, it’s a celebration of the music and a homage to the late great Freddie Mercury.

“We’ve taken the songs, broken them down to their simplest form and recreated them to truly display the complex harmony structures, along with full choreographed routines and plenty of factual monologues.

“It will have many a Queen fan singing along, dancing in the aisles and learning stories and reasons behind some of the greatest hits ever written.”

The show features many of Queen’s classics, from We Will Rock You to Who wants to Live Forever. Sarah Gent, marketing officer at The Witham, said: “People asked for tribute music and it’s proving really popular. Come along and enjoy an awesome night of Queen music.”

Tickets for the show, which starts at 7.30pm, are £19 and £17 for U16s. Contact the box office on 01833 631107, go to www.thewitham.org to uk or www.ticketsource.co.uk/booking/venueplan/lKQaDup kJOMz.
