Rock of Ages takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair!
Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is proud to present ROCK OF AGES running from the 3rd to 18th May 2019 at the Centenary Theatre, Williamstown.
It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality.
Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall.
Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip – and themselves – before it’s too late?
Nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, ROCK OF AGES features the music of hit bands such as Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister, and Whitesnake among many others. Know What Love Is, Feel the Noise, and Take Your Best Shot captures the iconic era, visiting the larger than life characters and exhilarating story that has turned ROCK OF AGES into a global phenomenon.
This is one for the ages that will have you singing “Here I Go Again.”
