Go back to the day of classic rock bands with big egos playing big guitar solos and sporting even bigger hair! This Tony Award-nominated musical features the hits of many well-known bands including Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, and more!

As the story goes, in 1987, an aspiring rocker named Drew Boley works as a busboy in the Hollywood bar/club called the Bourbon Room, owned by Dennis Dupree and assisted by Lonny. He falls instantly for a girl, Sherrie Christian, who just arrived from Paloa, Kansas, hoping to make it big in acting. Drew convinces Dennis to hire Sherrie as a waitress, and the rest of this rockin' romance? You will just have to see the show to witness the whole story!

Presented under the stars in the Smith Center Amphitheatre at Ohlone College, July 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 16, 21, and 22 at 8:00 PM each evening, with ASL interpretation July 8 and 16.
