Rock of Ages
« on: September 12, 2016, 10:22:47 PM »
So last week I was asked to go along to the Ffwrnes Theatre in Llanelli to take some photos of a New Directions Theatrical Society production of Rock of Ages.

The show opened with a blistering version of the guitar intro to David Lee Roth's Just Like Paradise.

The guitar player in the show is probably familiar to quite a few of you as it was Paul Davies formerly of Karnataka and Panic Room:

Playing the male lead of Drew Boley (left in photo below) was Michael Aubin, pictured with him is the character Lonny Barnett played by Ian Roach:

Playing the female lead of Sherrie was Stacey Harris:

The show was directed by Rebecca Wilson who was also the lead choreographer and was part of the ensemble cast:

My photos were taken during the last full rehearsal and I had to leave before the end, I went back the following night to watch the show in full on their opening night on Thursday.

Thanks Owen, I haven't seen the film and hadn't seen the show before so didn't know what to expect.

I didn't think I would but I really enjoyed it and the cast and crew did a great job putting on the show :)

Yes Paul is a great and Dave can play a bit too:

Funny thing is I see Paul more now , almost daily, than I did when he was in Panic Room, hence why I was asked to go and take photos  ;D
