ROCK OF AGES (YOUTH)
June 27 - July 17, 2022
(No camp July 4)
Performances July 15 & 16 7pm, July 17 2pm
Instructor: Kellie Harris
Set on L.A.'s famous Sunset Strip in 1987, Rock of Ages tells the story of Drew, a city boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small-town girl, who have both travelled to L.A. to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. This classic love story is set against the troubles at the Dupree Room, a “legendary temple of rock 'n' roll excellence,” now under threat by developers of being torn down and replaced with a strip mall. The threats of closure bring legendary rocker Stacee Jaxx to town, and an opportunity for Drew to chase his dream to rock out with the best.
Trouble brews as Drew abandons Sherrie for his dream of stardom, rock 'n' roll bad boy Stacee lures Sherrie away, and the Dupree Room is surrendered to developers. Can Drew and Sherrie rescue their love? And can the Dupree Room be saved before it's too late?
This camp will be a rocking good time with singing, dancing, and three live performances for the public!

She worked with older students at Raleigh Little Theatre, in Pieces of Gold, and in the WCPSS production of Les Miserables. One of her favorite musical memories is when her father was invited onto a Broadway stage as an extra in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. She is excited to "keep on rockin' in the free world" this summer with The Little Theatre of Winston Salem.
