ABOUT

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 Strip's 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 (and resident toilet cleaner) 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? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.

Songs Included: Just Like Paradise / Nothing But a Good Time, Sister Christian, We Built This City / Too Much Time on My Hands, Heaven/ More Than Words / To Be With You, Waiting For a Girl Like You, I Want To Know What Love Is, Cum Feel The Noise / We’re Not Gonna Take It, Harden My Heart/ Shadow of the Night, Here I Go Again, The Final Countdown, Any Way You Want It / I Wanna Rock, High Enough, I Hate Myself For Loving You/ Heart Of The Moment / Hit Me With Your Best Shot. Can’t Fight This Feeling. Every Rose Has It’s Thorn, Oh Sherri, The Search Is Over, Finale: Don’t Stop Believin’

 

Warning; Rock of Ages contains Adult situations and subject matter that is best enjoyed by patrons 18 years old or older
