Guiseppe Verdi’s Requiem is one of the most dramatic and emotional pieces of sacred music ever written. There are some who say Verdi’s Requiem is too dramatic for sacred music.

ROCK OF AGES

Posted on

Don’t Miss your chance to see Rock of Ages before it leaves town!
Tuesday, November 23rd 2010 – Sunday, November 28th 2010 at the Benedum Center
Come and see what The New York Times calls, “Impossible to resist! As guilty as pleasures get!”

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LA’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the ‘80s. It’s five time 2009 Tony® Award nominee ROCK OF AGES, an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, hits of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and many more.

Some of the costumes, dancing and language may not be appropriate for kids under the age of 14.
