Kiama Pavilion will be transformed into an epicentre of all things rock and roll from Thursday.
The Illawarra Youth Arts Project’s production of Rock of Ages – The Musical is set to take you back to a time of leather and denim, big hair and even bigger dreams, where the Hollywood sunset strip was a beacon of hope for rock.
From July 12, over a limited season, The Pavilion, Kiama will be transformed into a majestic, acid wash 80s scene.
The musical is centered around the the fabled west Hollywood club, The Bourbon Room, which is at risk of being demolished by greedy developers.
There are love triangles, heart break and far too many mullets, but most importantly, blistering 80’s rock music.
Featuring the music of Foreigner, Poison, REO Speedwagon, Bon Jovi and Europe, Rock of Ages is written by Chris D’arienzo and is the 28th longest running show in Broadway history, having featured in London’s prestigious West End, Vegas and Australia.
It was also the basis for the hit 2012 feature film starring Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta Jones.
Featuring a cast and crew of over 40 Illawarra youth, and a big hair backing band, director Adam Fisher said the production was sure to impress.
“This production is a celebration of the golden age of Rock and Roll. It's funny, its big and bold and bright, and it's full of songs everyone knows and loves,” he said.
“We've got some of the most talented youth of our region all on one stage, and they are giving everything they have.”
The production will be held from July 12 to 15 at Kiama Pavillion.
