Star-studded all-SA Cast to rock Montecasino

Broadway’s smash hit musical Rock of Ages is set to rock Montecasino’s Teatro for the first time from 26 September to 20 October 2019. This jukebox musical features 28 classic rock songs from the 1980s, including the hits ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’, ‘The Final Countdown’, ‘Here I Go Again’ and many more. As the humorous high-energy storyline unfolds, the audience takes a journey back to a colourful era while singing along to rock anthems that come alive on stage. Rock of Ages is a feel-good stage production where audiences are rocking in their seats at every performance.

The extraordinary characters and roller-coaster story that turned Rock of Ages into a global phenomenon are brought to life by a dynamic all-South African cast, band and production team. The star-studded Rock of Ages cast features this country’s finest talent across the entertainment spectrum, including musical theatre, television shows, concerts, movies and recording artists.  
     Vocalist, producer and WONDERboom frontman, Cito, is cast as the male lead playing Stacee Jaxx, with The Voice South Africa 2017 runner-up Josh Ansley in the role of Drew, and singer, actor, director and producer Zak Hendrikz is Lonny. Popular actor, writer and award-winning director Neels Clasen is cast as Hertz, and actor and drama lecturer Matt Counihan plays the role of Franz. Twenty-one-year-old female lead Jessica Driver plays Sherrie and Lois du Plessis, in the role of Justice, returns to South Africa after living in the USA for almost twelve years.
     Returning from the highly successful Chicago The Musical world tour sees former West End and SA performer Craig Urbani, Natasha van der Merwe and Raquel Munn in principal roles with fellow Chicago cast members Alex Girard and Stefania du Toit joining Lara Kleynhans, and Chantel Stanfield to complete the female ensemble. Lebohang Toko and Adam Benefield perform alongside the male ensemble members Thokozani Jiyane, JP Rossouw and Ryan Flynn. 

Produced by Montecasino in association with VR Theatrical, Rock of Ages combines the highly talented production team of Executive Producer Jaco van Rensburg, Director and Choreographer Timothy Le Roux and Musical Director/Associate Producer Wessel Odendaal, who leads the five-piece live band.
     Rock of Ages is a seriously mindless, ridiculously enjoyable glamour-rock musical that is not to be missed! It’s the hilarious book by Chris D’Arienzo that drives the piece. There’s great comedy, stellar performances and great music – all the ingredients of a great night out! Owing to adult themes, a PG13 is recommended.
