WE WILL ROCK YOU Extended through February 1, 2009
And: New Deal for Added Performances -- Ten Toonie Tuesdays

Producer David Mirvish is thrilled to announce that the wildly popular, all-Canadian, Dora Award-winning musical production of WE WILL ROCK YOU will extend its engagement at the Panasonic Theatre until February 1, 2009. The new block of tickets will go on sale on Saturday, November 22.

And here's even better news: An extra performance a week at an irresistible ticket price will be added to the playing schedule. Beginning December 2, WE WILL ROCK YOU will play on Tuesday evenings and every seat in the theatre will cost only $20. This new promotion is being called Ten Toonie Tuesdays.

Explains David Mirvish: "Since the very first performance of WE WILL ROCK YOU in Toronto almost two years ago, it was clear this was a show that would develop a grassroots fan base. And that's exactly what has happened -- the show has a big base of fans who have seen the show dozens of times. These people have come to know many of the cast members very well, have posted pages on the Internet about the show and have become our production's best ambassadors. Tuesdays nights are our way of saying thanks to them and of increasing their numbers. I've no doubt our new Ten Toonie Tuesdays promotions will mean that Tuesday nights will really rock at the Panasonic Theatre beginning December 2."

WE WILL ROCK YOU, a new musical based on the songs of Queen, now in its 19th sensational week at the Panasonic Theatre, moved here after playing 61 weeks at the Canon Theatre.

The all-Canadian cast features Yvan Pedneault as Galileo, Erica Peck as Scaramouche, Alana Bridgewater (Menopause Out Loud!) as the Killer Queen, Camilla Scott (Mamma Mia!, Crazy For You) as Khashoggi, Jack Langedijk (Kiss of The Spiderwoman, A Streetcar Named Desire) as Pop, Sterling Jarvis (Disney's The Lion King) as Duff and Valerie Stanois as Oz.

Dora Award-winner for Best Musical, the Canadian production of WE WILL ROCK YOU has been an audience favourite, receiving standing ovations at each and every performance. Originally scheduled to play seven weeks, the show was quickly extended again and again. WE WILL ROCK YOU played 61 weeks at the Canon Theatre, was seen by more than 700,000 people, generated an estimated economic spin-off to the city of $180 million and provided employment to more than 300 Canadian artists, technicians and theatre support staff.
