Rock of Ages




A jukebox rock musical featuring hits from the 1980s.


Story:

Drew Bowie, an aspiring rock star, meets Sherrie, a small-town girl, at The Bourbon Room, a bar in danger of being torn down. But, while attempting to pursue their desperate dreams and afraid to admit the truth, the two fall apart before realizing that "the dreams you come with aren't always the dreams you leave with, but they still rock."
