Event Notes


The Kamloops Music Collective presents
Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music's
Rock of Ages, Youth Edition

July 26, 2023 at 12:00pm & 2pm
This year, the Junior Musical Theatre students at the Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music will be performing the youth edition of the Rock of Ages Musical! This squeaky-clean adaptation of the rockin' Broadway musical is everything teachers, parents and kids love: a boy-meets-girl classic story set to an exciting and fun 80s rock soundtrack. What could be better?
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” 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?
