A drama society based at Australia's University of Sydney will stage several performances of Kanye: The Musical in September. The hour-long production will tell the story of West's "humble beginnings writing beats for Jay-Z to the top of the pops remixing Daft Punk".
University student Phillip Roser and friend Damien Higginbotham are behind the musical's creation, and will play several roles themselves. Roles include West's late mother Donda, designer Marc Jacobs and a "spooky Dracula".
"I'm a big Kanye fan," Roser told Pop & Hiss. "I thought that a musical in his honour would be a lot of fun to put on. I really just meant the show to be something fun for my friends to see and I'm pretty excited by all the attention it's been getting."
The musical's Facebook page reads: "This is a story of a struggle against the man to become the man. It's about a guy who took a shot at the throne and didn't miss. This is the tale of Kanye. It won't let the truth get in the way and will be a lot of fun."
The pair have also written original songs for the production, which are all in the "style of Kanye". The play will run from September 5 to September 7 at the university's Cellar Theatre during the annual Verge festival.
Jay-Z and West announced two singles from Watch the Throne earlier today.
