Congratulations to our cast, and we are looking forward to having these rock gods at Koorliny over the next five months!

Rock of Ages is a rock/jukebox musical, with a book by Chris D’Arienzo, built around classic rock songs from the 1980s, especially from the famous glam metal bands of that decade. The musical features songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Europe among other well-known rock bands.

Director Steve Carr said: “This is the music I grew up with, the rock of the ’80s. I remember my first tape I bought was Poison. Yes, tapes … So when I found out there was a musical based around the music I grew up on I couldn’t think of a better fit for my personality.”
