Description

Rock of Ages is a rock musical set in Hollywood in 1986, when it was all about big chords, big dreams and…big hair! It blends the traditions of musical theater with the joy, energy and passion of a rock concert, and was inspired by the rising nostalgia for the 1980s, its timeless music and the classic “hair bands” whose sonic power filled the airwaves and the clubs on L.A.’s Sunset Strip. The show explores the pursuit of dreams: some come true, some are cut short and some change along the way. No matter what, the persistence of the human heart is what matters…so “Don’t Stop Believing!”

Songs in the show include:

  • “We Built This City” – Starship
  • “Too Much Time on My Hands” – Styx
  • “Sister Christian” – Night Ranger
  • “We’re Not Gonna Take It” – Twisted Sister
  • “More Than Words” – Extreme
  • “Waiting For a Girl Like You” – Foreigner
  • “Wanted Dead or Alive” – Bon Jovi
  • “Can’t Fight This Feeling” – REO Speedwagon
  • “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” – Poison
  • And dozens more!
