Following Legally Blonde cast member Alex Gaumond joining the show in August as the lead role Galileo, there is more cast news for We Will Rock You with a new Scaramouche, Khashoggi, and the bad-ass, loved-up rebel leader Britney.
The producers have announced that the ever popular Brenda Edwards (Killer Queen), Kevin Kennedy (Pop) and Rachel John (Meat) will continue with the show through 2012.
From 10 October, the role of Scaramouche will be taken by Lauren Samuels, one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s BBC TV Over the Rainbow protogees
You will have seen her last in the West End as Sandy in Grease at the Piccadilly Theatre.
Alasdair Harvey will become Killer Queen’s side kick Khashoggi – he is one of musical theatre’s most accomplished leading men having strutted his stuff in Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera, Side By Side By Sondheim, Sunday in the Park With George, and Les Miserables. But most will know him as Jane Beale’s love interest Martin in Eastenders.
Taking on the role of the rebel Britney is Wayne Robinson. With other musicals such as Hairspray and The Lion King under his belt, Wayne is also a successful solo recording artist who has written and performed alongside such artists as Lulu and Lionel Richie.
With over 3,600 performances behind it, and holding the record for the longest running show ever at the Dominion, We Will Rock You continues to show no signs of slowing down as it approaches its 10th anniversary in London with over 12,000 people a week coming to see the show. With the London run recently further extended, the show is now booking through to October 2012.
