NUTLEY, NJ - The township is about to take a jump back in time with the opening of 'Rock of Ages' on Fri. Feb. 28 at Nutley High School. 

A small town girl and a city boy don't stop believing in chasing their dreams on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Described as a "jukebox musical," Chris D'Arienzo's work tells their story with the music of Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison, and Europe.

The all-star production features a cast of Nutley High School students as well as a live band of students and professionals. The production staff includes director Michael Gurrieri, musical director Rebecca Polynice, choreographers Dara Moscaritola and Rebecca Vigna, assistant director Eric Wdowiak, producer Jenine Grzywinski, scenic designer Michael Gurrieri, lighting designers Nicole Case and Gabriella Rizzo, sound designer Henry Meola, costume designers Jenine Grzywinski and Christina Surrestky, art directors Theresa Lappostato and Angela Melchionne, student director Kaylie Flynn-Murray, and stage manager Natasha Marshall. Stage crew and production support are staffed by family volunteers and students, including members of NHS Thespian Honor Society Troupe 4757.
