Grad to grace Caesars stage in Queen tribute

Sean Sennett wasn’t out of school a month before landing a role in a touring production of the rock musical We Will Rock You, which will make a stop this weekend at Caesars Windsor.

After graduating in April 2019 with a BFA in Acting from the School of Dramatic Art, Sennett sent in an audition to the company putting together the first national tour of the hit show — a theatrical production with a story by Ben Elton built around the songs of the band Queen.

As a new grad, Sennett didn’t know what to expect, but was blown away when he received the phone call telling him he was cast as an ensemble member and an understudy for one of the lead roles.

“Everything has just sort of aligned to this one particular show,” he says, “It’s just so crazy. I’ve been a Queen fan my entire life so this is even that much better.”

Sennett was memorable in his roles with University Players last year as Bart in Mr. Burns and Alan in God of Carnage.

Since 2002, more than 16 million theatregoers in 19 countries have seen We Will Rock You, featuring some of Queen’s biggest hits songs, including We Are the Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Another One Bites the Dust.

Caesars Windsor will present the show Nov. 29 and 30. Tickets are available here.
