Q107 welcomes JUKEBOX HERO: The Musical, an Annerin Theatricals Production to the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium this August 10 – 12.
Tickets are on sale now, starting at $84.
This story takes place in Blaydon, PA a rust – belt town dependent on one main industry. When the plant closes it means that two thirds of the town will be out of work and on welfare. Ryan Perry is Blaydon’s most famous son, a big music star who hasn’t been back home in years. He receives an emotional appeal from his father to stage a benefit concert. Ryan is reluctant but his girlfriend, Zola persuades him it’s the right thing to do. Returning to Blaydon doesn’t just mean revisiting a town where he has become a stranger means confronting the ghosts of his past.
JUKEBOX HERO features all 16 of Foreigner’s iconic Top Thirty hit songs including I Want To Know What Love Is, Cold As Ice, Waiting For A Girl Like You, Hot Blooded, Urgent, Head Games, Feels Like The First Time, and the show’s title song, Jukebox Hero.
INTRODUCING JUKEBOX HERO: The Musical
Foreigner are back on the road for their 40th anniversary tour – just as a brand new musical based on the timeless hits of the band prepares to open in Canada.
Jukebox Hero – The Musical will be given its world premiere in Alberta this coming August, with dates at the Jubilee theatres in Calgary and Edmonton.
The team behind Jukebox Hero – a coming of age story written to the music of British American band Foreigner – reads like a roll call of creative talent which is second to none.
Calgary-based Annerin Theatricals and Foreigner have joined forces with the prolific British writing duo Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, who have written the book of this new rock and roll musical.
Producer Jeff Parry from Annerin Theatricals commented: “Foreigner celebrate 40 years of musical success this year. Their songs have stood the test of time – and Jukebox Hero is the perfect way to introduce new audiences to the band’s catalogue of hit songs.
