WWRY BRIS UPDATE - 1ST FEB 2021
Now that 2021 is well and truly here, it’s time for us to prepare for WE WILL ROCK YOU in October! We are glad that restrictions have eased enough to allow us to proceed with the show – let’s all keep our hands washed and our fingers crossed that it stays that way!
Please ready on for all the important information you need to know before we get going:
CAST LOGIN PAGE
We have created a private cast login page on our website, where you can find all the current information you need to know about the production. You’ll find rehearsal schedules, training videos and a portal to purchase a costume pack or merchandise items (if you haven’t already), plus heaps more. To access the cast login page, visit:
Because it has been such a long time since auditions, we’d like to gather our mass ensemble for an orientation day on Sunday 2nd May from 8am -4pm at Sleeman Sports Centre, Chandler. This will be a chance for the whole mass ensemble to gather and be brought up to speed on our plans for the show, recap some of our Boot Camp training as well as get a head start on some staging and choreography.
**This date is additional to the dates originally listed, so we understand in this instance if you are unable to attend, but we’d love to have everyone there to get the ball rolling for this show!
Please make sure you have kept yourself free for all rehearsal and performance dates listed on the rehearsal schedule (which you can find on the cast login page, or CLICK HERE to download it). We will be putting out a more detailed schedule at the start of June that will show exactly which members of the mass ensemble are called on each day, but for now, please keep yourself free for all dates.
TICKETS ON SALE IN MARCH
Tickets for the show will be going on sale in late March! We will be sending a booking link through to you prior to the show going on sale to the general public, so you and your friends and family can get the best seats in the house in the pre-sale!
**If you secured complimentary tickets as part of the VIP Club membership in 2020, those tickets are still valid and being held for you as per the email you would have received last year.
If you would like to gain access to DISCOUNT TICKETS, you might like to consider joining our VIP Club this year – discounted tickets will be made available to all current members of our VIP Club when tickets go on sale.

ORDER A COSTUME PACK
All participants are required to purchase a costume pack that will provide you with a selection of costume elements for the show. Participants will be offered the opportunity to source some base elements of their costume and use the items in the costume pack as additional accessories – more information about costumes will be provided in the coming months.
If you have not ordered your pack, please do so as soon as possible. All costume pack orders must be in by Friday 2nd April.
**If you have already ordered your costume pack, no need to order a second. All of the items in the pack are generic sized items like wigs, hats, glasses and accessories, so no need to worry about sizing having changed over time.
***Costume packs will be distributed during holiday rehearsals in September.
BUY MERCHANDISE & HAVE IT POSTED TO YOU
We have a range of merchandise items available for sale in our online merchandise store, including WE WILL ROCK YOU t-shirts, posters and script & score books. Purchase online today and we will post the items out to you so you have them ready for the start of rehearsals!
To buy WE WILL ROCK YOU merchandise, scroll to the bottom of the cast login page at www.harvestrain.com.au/wwrybrisbane (password: galileo1981)
**If you previously purchase merchandise items and would like to have them sent to you prior to rehearsals, you can arrange for postage by CLICKING HERE. Alternatively, previously ordered items will be distributed at rehearsals.
FINAL AUDITIONS THIS MONTH
If you have friends of family members who missed our first round of auditions for the mass ensemble, we’re holding our final round this month. All the details can be found on our website by CLICKING HERE so feel free to let your friends know how they can join in the fun!
**This final round of auditions is only for those who have not yet applied to take part – no need for you to re-audition as you’re already in the show!
GOT ANY QUESTIONS?
As you can imagine, with over 700 participants in the Brisbane show, and another 3,000 participants in other cities, our team can get pretty busy answering questions from participants. We’re always happy to answer questions that are emailed through to us (it’s a little easier than handling thousands of phone calls), so if you ever have a question, email email@example.com and one of our friendly team will get back to you as soon as possible!
We are looking forward to having you involved in WE WILL ROCK YOU and can’t wait to see you in May!
