McKay’s winter musical, Rock of Ages hits the stage Friday, January 17 and runs two weekends. This cast and crew of fifty students have worked hard to make sure audience members have “nothin’ but a good time” as we relive the glory days of Glam Rock.
It’s the 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Heavy Metal flows freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, where legendary rocker Stacee Jaxx takes the stage. Aspiring rock star Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing and falls 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 developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it’s too late? Only the music of Poison, Twisted Sister, Styx, Pat Benatar and more hold the answer.
