Shoogly Peg Productions audition Rock of Ages

Edinburgh youth company Shoogly Peg Productions has announced auditions for its January 2018 production of Chris D’Arienzo’s rock/jukebox musical: Rock of Ages.

The company will be holding an audition workshop on Wednesday 13 September 2017, at St Thomas of Aquin’s High School, 2-20 Chalmers Street, Edinburgh with full auditions a week later on Wednesday 20.

Shoogly Peg is looking for new and existing members to audition for the show. Auditionees should be aged 16 or over – although younger members will be considered with parental permission.

The audition workshop will give applicants an opportunity to meet the production team and find out more about the show and the audition process. At the audition on September 20 the company will be work on some scenes from the show, review some of the music and there will be a movement piece to learn.

This will be the second amateur production of Rock of Ages in Edinburgh this winter. Allegro is also staging the show at the Church Hill Theatre from Tuesday 31 October to Saturday 4 November 2017.

boy-meets-girl formula

Built around the soft rock, power ballads and pomp anthems of 1980s glam metal, the show follows wannabe rock star Drew and wannabe actress Sherrie, who are both working as waiters in the Bourbon Room, a rock-joint on the Sunset Strip.

It’s a classic boy-meets-girl formula, with the jeopardy coming in the form of a German property developer who wants to tear down the city that was built on Rock’n’Roll and turn it into an anodyne shopping mall.

Anyone who would like to take part in today’s workshop or next week’s audition, should contact as soon as possible.
