About the show

Rock of Ages

Trinity Amateur Operatic Society’s next production is the award-winning hit musical ‘Rock of Ages’.

a seriously silly, absurdly enjoyable arena-rock musical

Rock of Ages takes you back to the times of big bands, big egos, big guitar solos & even bigger hair! This multi Tony Award – nominated Broadway musical features the hits of bands including Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Starship & many others…

It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, The Bourbon Room. 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 rock bands Styx, Whitesnake, Foreigner, Poison, and more hold the answer.

for anyone whose youth coincided with the time period in question, the siren call of those screaming guitars and singalong choruses may be impossible to resist

Show dates: 13th – 18th March 2017 at the Daneside Theatre, Congleton.
