Rock of Ages - Welcome Back to the 80's!

Plenty of classic 80's hits are featured in Rock of Ages, presented by Broadway Across Canada at The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts. Rock of Ages centres around a small town girl, Sherrie (Shannon Mullen), who meets a city boy, Drew (Dominique Scott) in a rock club on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. They fall in love, set to hits by Whitesnake, Journey, and Bon Jovi. With the great songs, long hair and makeup and acid-washed denim, there is never a dull moment!

The second act was especially good, with many full ensemble songs that showcased everyone's talent. Some of my favorites included We Built This City (Starship), Here I Go Again (Whitesnake) and the closing number, Don't Stop Believin' (Journey), which ended with a standing ovation.

What makes a night of 80's rock music more fun? Dressing in 80's wear!

Rock of Ages is a very fun musical to watch, and will have you singing along in your seat as you relive the 80's. So pull out your jean jacket and leg warmers and grab a friend - Rock of Ages will only be in Vancouver until May 13th. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased from Ticketmaster.
