MAIN STAGE: NOW PERFORMING
DATES: July 27-31, 2016
Wed-Sat @ 7:30pm | Sun @ 2pm
The party's been raging hard at the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood. Aspiring rock star Drew longs to be the next big thing (and pines for Sherri, fresh off the bus fro Kansas with stars in her eyes).
But the rock and roll fairy tale is about to end when developers sweep in with plans to turn it into another capitalist strip mall. This Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical features the hit music of Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and more!
PARENTAL ADVISORY: Rock of Ages is all about having a good time, and we want kids to rock out as hard as we know everyone will, but you should know some of the costumes, dancing and language might not be appropriate for kids under the age of 13. We think teenagers will totally think it's awesome, too. The show IS kind of like a music video brought to life. You know the maturity of your children, so we suggest you use your best judgement whether or not the show is appropriate for them. Just remember...if you do bring them, they'll get to see you rockin' like you did back in the day!
