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 ‘80s…

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 – having inspired the popular, star-studded film by the same name – is rockin’ its way to the Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. (High volume performance; ages 13+)

Cal Poly Arts presents the show that The New York Times called “Impossible to resist!”

“Rock of Ages will be the most fun you’ll have all year! It doesn’t matter what your age; this immensely entertaining roller coaster ride through the ‘80s is something you will not want to miss out on!” – LA Splash

ROCK OF AGES is a global phenomenon – with a smash hit production in London and still rockin’ on Broadway.  This worldwide party musical features 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 and comedy in perfect proportion!” (Time Out Magazine)
