Rock of Ages at Koor­liny

Kwinana Courier - - Front Page -

JUKE­BOX mu­si­cal Rock of Ages will rock Koor­liny Arts Cen­tre in March.

Di­rected by Steve Carr, the first pro­duc­tion in the Koor­liny Cen­tre and Kwinana In­dus­tries Coun­cil 2018 per­for­mance sea­son is built around clas­sic rock songs from the 1980s, no­tably the fa­mous glam metal bands.

A uni­ver­sal tale of fame and for­tune and mem­o­rable mu­sic, Rock of Ages fea­tures songs from Styx, Jour­ney, Bon Jovi, Pat Be­natar, Twisted Sis­ter, Steve Perry, Poi­son and Europe among oth­ers.

It’s the tail end of the big bad 1980s in Hol­ly­wood and the party has been rag­ing hard.

Aqua Net, Ly­cra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of Sun­set Strip’s last leg­endary venues, a place where sex ma­chine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scant­ily clad groupies line up to turn their fan­tasies into re­al­ity.

Amid the mad­ness, as­pir­ing rock star (and res­i­dent toi­let cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing, and longs 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 Ger­man de­vel­op­ers sweep into town with plans to turn the fa­bled Strip into another cap­i­tal­ist strip mall.

Can Drew, Sherry and the gang save the strip – and them­selves – be­fore its too late? Only the mu­sic holds the an­swer. The per­for­mance con­tains coarse lan­guage, adult themes, drug and sex­ual ref­er­ences and is rec­om­mended for ages 15 plus.

Flash­ing lights (not strobe) are also part of the show and may be un­com­fort­able for some au­di­ence mem­bers.

Rock of Ages is on March 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17 with mati­nees on March 10 and 17.

Tick­ets are avail­able from www.koor­liny.com.au or the box of­fice on 9467 7118.
