ROCK OF AGES IN AID OF PUTTINU CARES
TAC Theatre has joined forces with Puttinu Cares to raise funds for families with children suffering from cancer by pledging €4 from every ticket sold between the 23rd and the 29th May to the upcoming musical, Rock of Ages.
The show, which will be the biggest musical ever to hit Malta’s shores, will feature a myriad of local stars, including Kurt Calleja, Errol Sammut, Nadia Vella, Taryn Mamo Cefai, Chris Dingli, Colin Fitz, Rachel Fabri Camilleri, Steffan Cheriet Busuttil, Rach Tedesco Triccas and Katherine Brown.
The cast will also be performing various numbers during Puttinu Cares’ 60-hour Football & Volleyball Marathon on the 29th May at 7pm at the Marsa Sports Complex.
“When Puttinu invited us to be part of their upcoming marathon, we instantly said yes,” explained Wesley Ellul from TAC Theatre, who is also the producer of Rock of Ages. “Both Marc, who is directing it, and myself are fathers, and we believe in helping out organisations like Puttinu Cares, which do so much good for our communities and those in need, particularly the little ones.”
Rock of Ages, which will open at the City Theatre in Valletta on the 29th June, is the local adaptation of the five-time Tony Award-winning jukebox musical built around classic rock songs from the 1980s. Penned by Chris D’Arienzo, the musical features hit numbers by Styx, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister, Poison and Europe, among others.
On top of the stellar cast, Rock of Ages also includes a number of renowned names in the industry working behind the scenes, including Marc Cabourdin and Wesley Ellul as the directors of the musical, Renzo Spiteri as the musical director, Sue Vassallo on choreography, and Roger Tirazona as vocal coach.
The musical will open on 29th and 30th June, and will run every Wednesday throughout summer. Tickets can be purchased here.
Rock of Ages is powered by XFM, Carlsberg and Pepsi. It is also supported by Sign It, Medialink Communications, Boat Care Yacht Charters, Matrix Scaffolding, Findit.com.mt, Piccinino Lingerie, and Ticketline.com.mt.
