For the Townsman

Mount Baker Wild Theatre students are hard at work on their next big musical, Rock of Ages High School Edition. The show is a jukebox musical comedy with a host of familiar tunes by Steve Perry, Poison, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Joan Jett and a host of others.

Leading the cast are Jared Adams as Drew and Jelena Jensen as Sherrie, two kids with a dream of making it in LA in the mid to late ’80s. Filling out the cast are Alexander Gilmour as Dennis Dupree, the ex-rocker-turned-owner of the Bourbon Room on Sunset Strip; Preston Gramm as his faithful bartender, Lonny; TJ Moulton as Stacee Jaxx, the once-on-top-of-the-world rocker on his way out, Maria Bolio as Justice, owner of the Venus Room dance club and Isabella Fiorentino as rock activist Anita Bath. Suzanne Coulter and Cedar Gross feature as Hilda And Franz Klinemann, a German mother and son duo who set out to repurpose Sunset Strip into a typically commercial wonderland.

It’s a fun show with a live band on stage! Come on out and even dress up in your favourite 80s rocker outfits. It’s a good time out with the friends and coworkers (make a staff party of it). Rock of Ages High School Edition plays November 24-26 at 7:30 and November 27 at 2:30. Tickets are $18/$15 for students and seniors.

All performances are at the Key City Theatre and are available at www.keycitytheatre.com. Prepare to have your faces melted!
