Sioux Falls, SD The audience favorite, ROCK OF AGES, produced and managed by Fifth Estate Entertainment, is back on stage with a tenth anniversary tour. Nominated for five Tony Awards® including Best Musical, the all-new production will play at the Washington Pavilion from March 11-13, 2019.
“Be prepared to relive the ‘80s! From the classic rock songs to the bell bottoms, this musical will have you remembering ‘the good ol’ days’,” said Regina Ruhberg, Director of Performances and Events.
It’s 1987 on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip when a small-town girl meets a big city rocker. As they fall in love in L.A.’s most famous rock club, ROCK OF AGES allows fans to rock out once again to their favorite ‘80s hits. Featuring the music of iconic bands such as Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister and Whitesnake among many others, this tenth anniversary production features a dynamic new cast revisiting the larger-than-life characters and exhilarating story that turned ROCK OF AGES into a global phenomenon.
ROCK OF AGES opened April 7, 2009 on Broadway and played more than 2,300 performances at the Brooks Atkinson and Helen Hayes Theatres earning five Tony Award® nominations including Best Musical. The show also enjoyed successful national and international tours and, in 2012, was turned into a major motion picture by New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures. With a book by Chris D’Arienzo and arrangements and orchestrations by Ethan Popp, the tenth anniversary tour is being directed by Martha Banta and choreographed by Janet Rothermel.
