A Q&A with JCPaquet – Cast Member in We Will Rock You

Your name:

JCPaquet

What role(s) are you playing?

Brit

How long have you been in theatre?

35 years

What do you do by day?

Graphic Designer/Visual Artist

Why do you do community theatre?

A great way to keep up my acting and performance skills. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it! plus I love seeing people react to whatever outrageous things I do on stage.

What’s your favourite moment/song in this show – without giving too much away? Why?

For my character it’s I WANT IT ALL because it has this incredible strength behind every moment but in the whole show I would say UNDER PRESSURE being on my top 10 list of greatest rock songs ever

Do you have an rituals that you do to help you to prepare before you perform?

This show is pumping weights, doing pushups and lots of stretching the old muscles. But I do enjoy sitting quietly meditating behind the curtain listening to the people fill the auditorium feeling the excitement and anticipation build up

What is it that you like about working with Marquee?

I enjoy being TRUSTED and VALUED for my creativity in many ways including set painting and performing

What would you love for the potential audience out there to know about the show?

It’s the music of QUEEN. Most will be singing along to everything. For many it will evoke memories… I bet many have even forgotten that Queen wrote some of these songs. For others, it is potential for becoming new fans of the incredible music this ROCK band of the 70’s and 80’s created. The story itself is kind of silly but in a very playful way and there are so many emotional moments… like a rollercoaster!
