Summer Camps

Rock of Ages: Youth Edition

$525

with Kellie Harris

Calendar Jun 27, 2022 at 9:30 am, runs for 3 weeks

For students ages 10-17
Monday-Friday
June 27-July 15 (No camp July 4)
9:30am-4:30pm
Performances July 15 & 16 7pm, July 17 2pm

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!
