In February 2014 StageWorks Ink in co-operation with The Portland School of Rock, brought you the King of the Impossible LIVE on stage with the music of the Kings of Glam-Rock; QUEEN! But in this version, in addition to the iconic Flash Gordon theme song, we have added many classic and favorite songs from the band's decades of amazing music.
See the over-the-top characters of the 80s sci-fi classic Flash Gordon singing the epic songs of Queen, with all the low-budget tom-foolery you have come to expect from StageWorks Ink!
When the Earth is threatened with destruction by the planet Mongo, Flash Gordon, New York Jets football hero, and his high school sweetheart, Dale Arden are shanghaied aboard Dr. Hanna Zarkov's rocket ship in an attempt to save the planet by appealing to Mongo's Emperor, Ming the Merciless. But Ming has other plans, and decides to wed Dale before destroying the Earth. Flash must avoid the amorous advances of Ming's daughter, Aura and unite the warring kingdoms of Mongo to over throw Ming to save his love and his planet... And he only has 14 hours to do it all!!!
Added to the show are 16 iconic rock songs by Queen performed by our cast:
Flash Theme, These Are the Days of Our Lives, A Kind of Magic, We Will Rock You, Slightly Mad, One Vision, I Want to Break Free, Hammer to Fall, The Show Must Go On... and many others!
