The Broadway hit musical Rock of Ages has had audiences dancing in the aisles the world over. Now your students can become the biggest rockstars in their schools! Rock of Ages: Middle School Edition has all the 80s rock anthems you (and your students' parents) know and love, with a fun-filled story of romance, fame, and always believin'! With a 60-minute runtime, the book has been adjusted for appropriate content, and the rock anthems adapted for teen voices, making it a fun, easy, and cool introduction to acting and singing.  The show pack comes with a comprehensive step-by-step guide to producing, directing, and designing your production, as well has a student guide that will help your students to a wide range of theatrical skills, developed by theatre education leaders, iTheatrics.

With everything you need to produce a rockin' show straight out of the box, Rock of Ages: Middle School Edition will be the next big hit at your school! 


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?
