Rock of Ages at the Tower Story of Jukebox Heroes, Where Every Rose Has Its Thorn, with People Who Don’t Stop Believin’

This September 15-23, the Tower Theatre Foundation kicks off the 2017-18 Live at the Tower season with Thoroughly Modern Productions’ staging of the Broadway hit Rock of Ages. Multiple Tony-nominee, Rock of Ages is a musical love story set on the Sunset Strip in 1987 featuring Drew, a shy kid from South Detroit and Sherrie, a small-town Kansas girl, chasing dreams of making it big in Hollywood. The story lines are dressed up with radio-rock hits from the 1980’s, blending sincere conviction and a lot of parody.

“For anyone whose youth coincided with the time period in question, the siren call of those screaming guitars and sing-along choruses may be impossible to resist,” wrote the New York Times. “It’s a seriously silly, absurdly enjoyable arena-rock musical.”

Sing-along and play air guitar to an electrifying mix of classic rock anthems played live onstage, including We Built This City, We’re Not Gonna Take It, Heat of the Moment and Here I Go Again. Plus, the all-rock-star cast features the following local voices:

Drew – Erik J. McGinnis
Sherrie – Clairen Stone
Lonny – Dan Schimmoller
Dennis Dupree – Ryan Klontz
Justice – Kimmie Neff
Stacee Jaxx – Dakota B. Weeda
Regina – Kara Davison
Hertz – John Henry Helms III
Franz – Jarret Clarke
