We Will Rock You
John Lyon Musical

Monday 9th December
Tuesday 10th December
Wednesday 11th December 2019
Ryan Theatre, Harrow School


Everywhere on the planet, people watch the same movies, listen to computer-generated music, wear the same clothes and hold the same thoughts and opinions. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown. However, a small group of “Bohemians” struggles to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and (most of all) live music.

John Lyon’s 2019 musical, We Will Rock You, comes to Harrow School’s Ryan Theatre in December – an extravaganza featuring the hit music of Queen, complete with amazing costumes, choreography and orchestra.

John Lyon is an independent school, a member of HMCISC and is reviewed in the Good Schools Guide.

Pupils typically join John Lyon in Years 7, 9 and 12, largely from a North West London catchment area including Harrow, Wembley, Stanmore, Pinner, Watford, Rickmansworth, Northwood, Ruislip, Hillingdon, Uxbridge, Ickenham, Northolt, Southall, Ealing, Acton, Edgware, Brent Cross, Finchley, Barnet, Camden, Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, as well as other parts of Middlesex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
