About this show

Hot on the heels of the Workhouse Arts Center's sell-out production of Avenue Q comes Rock of Ages: The Musical! Created by Chris D'Arienzo, Rock of Ages features the music of Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, and many more favorite '80s bands.

This Tony-Award winning musical takes you back to the 1980s era of "big": big bands, big egos, big guitar solos, and big hair! Aqua Net, Lycra, and liquor flow freely on the legendary Sunset Strip rock music scene. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star Drew longs to become the next big thing in music and longs for fresh-off-the-bus newcomer Sherrie, a Kansas kid with stars in her eyes. This musical comedy lovingly nudges the fashion of the 1980s and features some of the best rock hits from the time with music from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and many more.
