Kanye: The Musical's Facebook page states: "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."
Student Philip Roser and his friend Damien Higginbotham are responsible for making Yeezy's life into a musical, and will play several roles in the production - including West's late mother Donda, Dracula and designer Marc Jacobs.
Rose revealed to Pop & Hiss: "I'm a big Kanye fan, 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 production will run Down Under at the university's theatre from 5-7th of September and is set to feature some original songs which the duo have penned "in the style of Kanye."
