Queen & Ben Elton's WE WILL ROCK YOU soon to rock Norway.
Opening January 2011.

27 January 2011 will see the opening of We Will Rock You in Norway, having its premiere that night at Olso's Folketeateret.

Norway marks the latest country to celebrate the world-wide hit show following productions in England, Germany, Australia, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, USA, Russia, Japan, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand and Sweden.

The female lead of 'Scaramouche' in Oslo is to be played by singer/actress Mari Haugen Smistad who has received fantastic reviews for her role in the Swedish Cirkus theatre production.

Joining Mari in the Norway production of WE WILL ROCK YOU will be many of Norway's best musical artists and rock musicians in what is being hailed the biggest stage production yet seen in Norway.

Based on the original London production written by Ben Elton featuring the music of Queen, the Norwegian dialogue translation is made by Kjetil Indregard.

We Will Rock You opens Oslo Folketeateret Thursday January 27, 2011 with performances thereafter Thursdays 7.30 pm, Fridays 5.00 pm and 9.00 pm and Saturdays 4.30 pm and 9 pm.

Tickets are from 560 to 650 NOK (£59,80 - £69,40) - ticket fee included- and are available from ticket hotline number + 47 815 33133 or online: www.billettservice.no

About Mari Haugen Smistad:
Mari is a 25-year-old actress and singer, born and raised in Trondheim. Song and dance has been in her blood as long as she can remember, and dressing up and acting on the home farm Smistad began when she was only a child.

In high school Mari chose to focus on song, but after the musical program at Trondheim Cathedral School she got the chance to satisfy all her interests in musical performance at the Bårdar Academy in Oslo (2003-2005). Three years she joined the Gothenburg Theatre Academy's musical program, "The Artist" (2005-2008).

Marie made her debut at the Norwegian Theatre, where she played several roles, in the newly written musical Peter Pan (2007). Her first leading role was "Wendler" in the European premiere of Spring Awakening in Karlstad (2008/2009). This led her to the Trøndelag Theatre and the role of "Ilse" in the same musical (2010), where she also was dance captain. Mari has in addition worked as a singer in the group show "Showbøck", and as a waitress, and when not appearing on stage she continues to study psychology.

Mari auditioned for the Stockholm production in January this year and won the part. Almost exactly a year later, January 2011, she will take on the role a second time when the Norway production opens.
