The smash-hit musical, Rock of Ages will be performed Feb.19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas.

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city dreamer – and in L.A.'s most legendary rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the '80's. It's Rock of Ages, a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake and many more. This five-time Tony nominated musical is rockin' its way across the USA.

Rock of Ages is a worldwide phenomenon with a hit production in London and Broadway, featuring 28 classic rock tunes including "Don't Stop Believin'," "We Built This City," "The Final Countdown," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Here I Go Again," "Harden My Heart," "Can't Fight this Feeling," "Renegade" and "I Want To Know What Love Is."Rock of Ages is directed by Tony Award Nominee Kristin Hanggi (Bare, Pussycat Dolls on the Sunset Strip) and choreographed by Kelly Devine (Jersey Boys – Associate Choreographer).  With a book by Chris D'Arienzo (writer and director of the film Barry Munday), original arrangements by David Gibbs (Counting Crows, Film: That Thing You Do) and the Music Supervision, Arrangements and Orchestrations by Ethan Popp (Tarzan; Europe: We Will Rock You, Mamma Mia).
