Final Countdown for Rock of Ages
Big songs, big hair and even bigger egos are ready to rock the stage at the Levin Performing Arts Centre as the cast bring Rock of Ages to Levin.
It’s down to the last week of rehearsals and another blockbuster is due to open.
The Final Countdown means more than just the song as the cast rushes rapidly towards opening night.
The week where everything must come together has arrived and there is soon going to be no chance to say they’ll get it right on the night. The director wants it right now.
Sixteen weeks of rehearsal and countless volunteer hours from all involved has finally reached the stage where audiences can get to share the excitement of the 80s.
Dennis and Lonny are ready to welcome patrons to the legendary Bourbon Room where anything is likely to happen (and does). Drew, I Wanna Rock, is ready to get everyone rocking along with him, Justice Charlier sets the Venus Club and its gentlemen guests on the right track with Anyway You Want It and Every Rose Has Its Thorn.
Small town girl Sherrie comes to town with big dreams and an even bigger voice. Working in the Venus Club as a lap dancer may not have been the dream but in the legendary words of wisdom from Lonny — the dreams you came with may not be the dreams you go home with.
The audience will go home with a dance in their step and the songs of the 80s set on a repeating loop in their minds. It’s going to be a challenge to resist joining in on the choruses of these songs.
Don’t resist the urge, in fact Lonny will be actively encouraging it.
