‘Rock of Ages’ Auditions July 26 & 28

MORRISTOWN - Are you ready to rock? Encore Theatrical Company is looking for rockers for their upcoming production of “Rock of Ages.” Auditions will be held July 26 & 28.

Set in L.A.'s infamous Sunset Strip in 1987, “Rock of Ages” tells the story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit and Sherrie, a small-town girl, both in L.A. to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. “Rock of Ages” takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair!

“Rock of Ages” is a rock love story told through the mind blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake and many more. This 5 time Tony nominated musical features 28 classic rock tunes including "Don't Stop Believin" "We Built This City," "Here I Go Again," "Can't Fight This Feeling," "I Wanna Know What Love Is" and many more!

Auditions will take place on Tuesday, July 26 and Thursday, July 28 at 6:30 p.m. at Walters State Community College, located at 500 S. Davy Crockett Parkway in Morristown. The production team is looking to cast a total of 10 men and 8 women, ages 20s through 40s. All cast members must have strong vocal abilities to sing rock music, good comedic timing, and ability to move well.

Those wishing to audition must prepare a rock song in the style of the 1980s rock music from the show. (Traditional musical theatre selections should not be used for this audition.) Songs from the show can be used in auditions. Please bring a copy of the sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. You may also use CD accompaniment, but all CDs should be easily cued to the audition number. All persons auditioning should also wear or bring comfortable clothing for a dance and movement portion of the audition.

The production will begin rehearsals in early August (with a modified rehearsal schedule for the month of August) and run through October 6. Performances are scheduled for October 7-16. For more information, please visit
