Speaking about the event, Transition Year student Brian Callaghan who plays the lead role of Drew said everyone involved was looking forward to the show.

“All of the Transition Year students are involved in the production, including the promotion of the event, the costumes and the set design so it’s a big production with everyone working as a team.”

“Learning the routines was probably most difficult for us all, as there were many moves involved, but we’re delighted with what we’ve achieved and we’re certain we’ll put on a fantastic show.”

“Rock of Ages” is a jukebox musical built around classic rock songs from the 1980s, especially from the famous glam metal bands of that decade. The musical features songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Europe, among other well-known rock bands.
