Get out the big hair ‘dos and rocker denim we know you still have hidden in the back of your closets. Rock of Ages is landing its studded boot heels at the Playhouse next week, and this show is going to be W-I-L-D. This is the perfect summer jukebox musical about a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world, who meets a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit, both livin’ just to find emotion.
If you still need convincing, here are a few reasons you need to see Rock of Ages and why it truly does rock!
Big 80s tunes, big hair, and big egos will all rock the house in Rock of Ages, the Playhouse’s outrageous and raucous summer jukebox musical. Audiences will be dancing in the aisles to such memorable songs as “Waiting For a Girl Like You,” “We’re Not Gonna’ Take It,” “Harden My Heart,” and “Don’t Stop Believin”” For Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, and Europe fans, this show is a slice of rock and roll heaven.
Come and join our team — no experience required! The Duluth Playhouse is a nonprofit community theatre, and that means we rely heavily on the support of our volunteers. The next time you come to a show, you can be proud not only to watch the transformations onstage, but also know you helped to make it happen.
Why did the Duluth Playhouse put Annapurna on their schedule? Quite simply it was to have a pair of performers like John Pokrzywinski and Christine Winkler Johnson sink their acting chops into the play’s final scene, which runs about an hour, and mesmerizes the audience into a breathless silence.
