Rock of Ages, Disney's The Lion King Jr.


Rock of Ages

Broadway’s Best Party is turning up the volume to eleven! Nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, ROCK OF AGES captures the iconic era that was the big bad 1980s Hollywood. Know What Love Is, Feel the Noise, and Take Your Best Shot at one of the Sunset Strip’s last epic venues, The Bourbon Room. Run by chilled-out former rock impresario Dennis Dupree, and tended to by Dennis’s mischievous assistant Lonny, it is the essence of rock and roll. When bright-eyed young hopeful Sherrie Christian, a small-town girl who wants to make it as an actress, arrives in town, she bumps into Drew, a Bourbon Room busboy with dreams of rock and roll stardom. But when legendary Stacee Jaxx returns to the stage and a couple of scheming German real estate developers announce their intentions to demolish the Bourbon Room and the entire gritty Sunset Strip, the stakes are raised. Can a pack of rock and rollers save the strip, and themselves, before it's too late? Featuring the music of hit bands such as Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister, and Whitesnake among many others, this is one for the ages.

Disney's The Lion King Jr.

A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, The Lion King Jr. is the story of a young prince living in the African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, Simba spends his days exploring the grasslands and idolizing his father, Mufasa, while avoiding the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba's uncle, Scar, takes his father's life, Simba flees the Pride Lands.
