Following a pre-Covid sell-out tour, Rock Of Ages returns to Birmingham in September with Kevin Clifton in the role of Stacee Jaxx.
Kevin thrilled audiences as Jaxx on the 2018/2019 tour and he is excited to be back, reprising the role in 2021. He is best known as a professional dancer on BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing and in seven years on the show he reached the final a record five times - winning four glitter balls including the main glitter ball trophy in 2018 with Stacey Dooley.
Since then, Kevin has gone on to appear in many other theatre productions including The Wedding Singer and Singin’ in the Rain. The producers of the tour said:
“We are delighted Kevin will be back as Stacee Jaxx. He has wowed us and audiences with his superb singing voice and we can’t wait for him to be part of our exciting show once again.
“We are also thrilled to welcome back many returning cast members from the last tour and a new rising star Joe Gash who will be playing the iconic role of Lonny.
“We can’t wait to be back and to give audiences (and fans) the bestparty night out of the summer.”
The full cast for the tour includes Luke Walsh, who first played the lead role of Drew in the 2018/2019 tourand he is back to reprise the role in 2021. Luke is a singer/songwriter and his theatre credits include ‘Chess’ (Umeda Arts Theatre, Osaka) and ‘Boybands Forever’ (Germany Tour).
Rhiannon Chesterman played Regina on the previous tour and is returning in the role of Sherrie. Joe Gash will play the iconic role of Lonny. Joe will be making his theatre debut in the role.
Rock Of Ages is the hilarious musical comedy lavished with more than 25 classic rock anthems including ‘Don’t Stop Believin’, ‘We Built This City’ and ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’, played loud and proud by an awesome live band.
