ONGOING

Rock of Ages
Through March 13
The five-time Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical smash Rock of Ages tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. When the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it’s up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day – and the music. Rock of Ages’ electric score features all your favorite ’80s rock anthems and power ballads, including “Every Rose has Its Thorn,” “I Wanna Know What Love is,” “Here I Go Again,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” and more! So, get ready to rock and roll all night....or at least until the curtain goes down!
Where: John W. Engeman Theater, 250 Main Street, Northport
