Get ready to transport back to the 80’s with the newest on-stage production at Northland Performing Arts Center!

Presented by Imagine Productions, Rock of Ages is hitting the stage at Northland Performing Art Center (4411 Tamarack Blvd Columbus) this Thursday Aug 2 through Sunday Aug 5.

It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it’s too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.

Performance times will be at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday. House opens 30 minutes prior to the show. Tickets can be purchased online at https://tiktz.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=46.
