We Will Rock You

The Musical by Queen & Ben Elton

From 5 May 2022

Show Information



“The show is live, dangerous and more than anything else – it rocks!” – Brian May, Queen

The worldwide smash hit musical by Queen and Ben Elton is coming to Dunedin!

Guaranteed to blow your mind, this musical phenomenon boasts the scale and spectacle that has marked the bands’ legendary live performances for decades!

Imagine a world without rock music. A world under the control of an all-powerful global company and its tyrannical boss, the Killer Queen.

Scaramouche and Galileo, two young outsiders, cannot come to terms with this bleak conformist reality. They join the Bohemians, a handful of rock rebels, and embark on the search to find the unlimited power of freedom, love and rock music!

Since 2002, over 16 million theatregoers in 28 countries have rocked out to this futuristic rock comedy based around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hits including: We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and, of course, We Will Rock You.

We Will Rock You is the biggest rock theatrical event of the century bringing audiences to their feet with rapturous standing ovations every night!

Rocking the foundations of the Regent Theatre Dunedin from Thursday 5 May 2022!

House Information


We pride ourselves on being one of the most accessible venues in the city. We have flat access through our main doors and staff are more than happy to help with the doors if needed. Taxis can drop off and pick up patrons from outside these doors and we can order a taxi for you after the show. There are accessible toilets on the lower level and a roomy lift provides access both to these facilities and to the Stalls seating. Seats in the Circle are accessed via several flights of stairs so we recommend patrons with mobility difficulties book seats in the Stalls. We have seven dedicated wheelchair spaces and our events are available via an augmented hearing assistance system. We also have opera glasses available for hire for $5 at the Box Office – just ask when you come in. We encourage our patrons to discuss their needs with us so we can ensure they enjoy the show.

Bar Service

Our bars have a selection of New Zealand wines and beers as well as juices, water, light snacks and ice creams. The bars will be closed five minutes before the show’s published start time.

Theatre Etiquette

People come to the Regent Theatre to have a great night out. So everyone has a good time, we ask all our patrons to be courteous to those around them.

  • Please turn off all your electronic devices before you come into the auditorium.
  • If you have taken snacks from our bar back to your seat, try not to rustle when the house lights go down.
  • If you are late to a show, get comfortable in our bar area until we can turn the house lights back on so you can find your seat.
  • Camera flashes occasionally make performers stumble – over their lines or their feet – so we prefer that you don’t use flash (or any other) photography.
  • Please keep your feet on the floor – someone counting the beat on the back of your seat can be distracting.
  • Dancing in the aisles sounds like fun but it might make our Circle collapse. If you really need to dance (and it’s the right sort of show), please book seats in the Stalls or make your way out to the foyer.
  • We encourage you to introduce your children to the arts, but please also teach them to watch and listen quietly and peacefully.
