LDTC presents ‘Rock of Ages’ in Silverthorne

Summit Daily staff report

For the second installment of its summer series, The Lake Dillon Theatre Company will be presenting "Rock of Ages," a musical featuring songs from popular 1980s bands like Journey, Stix, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Twisted Sister, REO Speedwagon, Poison, Survivor and more.

The play opens Friday and runs through July 15.

The theater is committed to presenting a diverse season of comedies, dramas and musicals, and the Lake Dillon Theatre Company has six productions in store for the 2018 Summer Theatre Season that celebrate what it means to be human.

"Rock of Ages" continues the theme by exploring what it means to be in love through big hair, big dreams and big music, according to the theater company.

The play follows a small town girl, Sherrie, who finds herself in trouble not long after hopping off a bus from the Midwest. Drew, a busboy with dreams of breaking in to the music scene, comes to her rescue and the chance encounter sparks a romance.

"In a season about the human condition, how could we not seize the opportunity to talk about love?" asked artistic director Christopher Alleman. "And we have chosen one of the more hilariously nostalgic shows to highlight young love with 'Rock of Ages.' Our audiences will be taken back to the days of Zima, Swatch watches, trickle-down economics, big hair and the best rock music ever."
