Q&A with Joseph Naccarato – We Will Rock You Band Member

Your name:

Joseph Naccarato

What role(s) are you playing?

I play drums in the WWRY band.

How long have you been in theatre?

This is my 5th production with Marquee.

What do you do by day?

Dream of retirement! 🙂

Why do you do community theatre?

I’ve always been a huge fan of musicals, so to be able to participate in bringing such a large variety of musical productions to life is incredibly satisfying!

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

Without a doubt, every song in this show is a gem, which makes picking a favourite particularly difficult. Rhythmically though, I love “Under Pressure”. For such a simple 4/4 rock beat, it has an incredible groove, helped to large extent by the brilliant bass line that plays throughout! Fantastic song!

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

It always comes down to practice! I make it a point to practice my charts daily, so that I’m fully prepared by the time we hit the stage. Being fully prepared also means that you can play with confidence, which can impact the performance of others.

What is it that you like about working with Marquee?

It’s very much like being part of a family. A family of very talented, dedicated and hard-working individuals.

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

We Will Rock You is a remarkable musical tribute to one of rocks’ most loved and enduring rock groups, Queen. With an incredible cast and a smoking hot band, you’ll hear over 20 of Queens’ best songs. This is a must see production!!
