Director/Choreographer: Sharon A. Wilcox
Music Director: Dan Ringuette
We are seeking the following musicians for this production – Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar and Drums. Auditioners should be prepared to play one minute of a fully memorized rock style song (80’s style preferably, but not from ROCK OF AGES) This should be something that you are very comfortable with, not something you just learned the day before! It is important that you perform your song, not just stand and deliver – THIS IS 80’s ROCK!
After making your audition appointment, you will be sent a short excerpt from the show to prepare in addition to your audition song. Musicians must be able to read sheet music, so a brief sight-reading exercise may also be required at your audition.
Rehearsals will be held on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning November 29th. Our initial read-thru will be held on Thursday, November 19th at 7:00pm. Musicians will not be required at every rehearsal. Because of the nature of the production, the musicians actually play a role and interact on several occasions with the actors on stage. The band will be costumed and required to attend some rehearsals in addition to tech week.
We would like to have the band present for the read-thru on Sunday, November 29th. to meet the cast and learn about the production and then return to rehearse with the cast mid-January. Separate rehearsals may be held with the music director prior to rehearsing with the cast.
Musicians will receive a stipend. Please send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org for full details compensation.
There will be one midweek rehearsal on Thursday, February 11, 2016.

ABOUT THE SHOW
ROCK OF AGES takes you back to the times of big bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair! This Tony Award -nominated Broadway musical features the hits of bands including Journey, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, and others.
Nominated for Five Tony Awards Including Best Musical!
It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip–and themselves–before it's too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.
ROCK OF AGES - It's about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!
