Casting "Rock of Ages." Synopsis: The musical tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock 'n' roll romance on the Sunset Strip, but when the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it's up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day - and the music. Rock of Ages electric score features all your favorite '80s rock anthems and power ballads, including "Every Rose has its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love is," "Here I Go Again," "Don't Stop Believin'," and more.

SEEKING 

DREW: An appealing, good-guy rocker with great boyish charm and vulnerability. Drew works as a bar back at the legendary Bourbon Room hoping and waiting for his dreams to come true. He finds an instant attraction to Sherrie, the beautiful new arrival from the Midwest, who encourages him to go after his dreams. Easy comedic timing and a very strong rock tenor voice.

 

SHERRIE: An in-shape, pretty, fresh faced, innocent Midwestern girl stepping right off the bus into a new world to pursue her dreams of stardom in LA. Strong comedic timing, strong rock belt, good movement ability. Must be comfortable in revealing/skimpy clothing.

DENNIS DUPREE: (Vocal Range: D3-G4) Classic stoner type guy who runs the famous Bourbon Room club on the Sunset Strip. Torn about whether he should sell the club to Hertz, a German businessman. A laid back, easy going, dude’s real dude. Very strong comedic timing and Bari-tenor rock vocals.

 

STACEE JAXX/FATHER: (Vocal Range: C3-Eb5) An oversexed, sexy rock star. He is at the top of his game and just left his very successful metal rock band to venture out on his own. Arrogant and charming, his life is a merry-go-round of good old sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. Very strong comedic timing and strong rock tenor voice.

HERTZ KLINEMANN: Vocal Range: F3-G#4) An attractive older German gentleman. Uptight, cold, intimidating businessman trying to buy up the Strip to develop it. He is our villain and needs to have a commanding presence with strong comedic timing and baritone vocals. Must have a good German accent.
