Rock of Ages is a jukebox musical featuring classic 80's hits which debuted on Broadway in 2009, where it was nominated for multiple Tony awards, before closing in 2015. Recently the show has been revived Off-Broadway with many members of the original cast in honor of the show's tenth anniversary.
Rock of Ages tells the story of aspiring rock star Drew Boley, who works as a busboy in a Hollywood bar, and Sherrie Chrisitian, an actress who moved to LA to become a movie star, as they both search for a way to make their mark on LA. The story, told through a mash-up of nearly thirty 80's rock classics, follows the two star-crossed lovers as they navigate the ups and downs of obtaining their dreams.
Rock of Ages will be directed by Marlette Carter and feature music direction by Mark Scarpelli. Natasha Allen will be serving as the Assistant Director.
