The People’s Rock, which features a puppet version of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is premiering at the Vault Festival in London.
Metro reports that The People’s Rock, which was created by the “Nevertheless, She,” group and is produced by Emma Shaw was, in part, inspired by the actor.
The People’s Rock will premiere at the Vault Festival in London on January 24. It’s reportedly a dystopian musical about a teenage girl, 30 years in the future, under the rule of “Emperor Trumpus.” The main character is “obsessed with the idea and the legend that is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.” Unfortunately, Johnson won’t actually appear in the musical, as the “fantasy/religious role model” version of him will be played by a puppet! “The Rock” is the only puppet in the production.
While the musical was inspired by the idea of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, it also serves to take on some very topical issues at the moment. Producer Emma Shaw commented on the story, saying, “we want to be relevant and talk about the way women engage with the messages someone like Donald Trump sends.”
Johnson is aware of the production, and he even tweeted his approval!
Ah a musical inspired by yours truly. Cool.. who’s hitting the high notes?
Read the premiere. Entertaining, with a strong 18yr old female voice. I love it!
Break a leg and I’m there in spirit! #ThePeoplesRock @VAULTFestival https://t.co/9oRp6ULqIU

No word yet on if the production will run beyond the Vault Festival, but if it’s a hit, who knows where it could go!
