The Reston Community Players (RCP), now on its 50th season, presents Rock of Ages from March 10 to April 1, 2017 at CenterStage, Reston Community Center
Rock of Ages, nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical, takes you back to the times of big ’80s rock bands with big egos playing big guitar solos, and sporting even bigger hair! This is a story of love, dreams, and—of course—rock! The musical production is the ultimate classic ’80s experience. Aspiring rock star, Drew, and aspiring actress, Sherrie, try to prevent developers from turning the Sunset Strip into a strip mall. Come rock out to the live band assembled on stage and enjoy your favorite songs from Styx, Whitesnake, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, and Twisted Sister.
“It is a privilege to direct the very talented cast of singers, dancers, and actors in Rock of Ages,” said Joshua Redford, director of the production. “This is a show unlike any other. Come on and ‘Feel the Noize’ at RCP.”
Since 1966 the Reston Community Players has brought to the public a variety of theatrical experiences and is committed to theatrical excellence and professionalism through the promotion of diverse, creative experiences for the education and cultural enrichment of the community. Partially funded by grants from Fairfax County, in cooperation with the Arts Council of Fairfax County, RCP welcomes all and offers something for everyone.
