THE Sunderland Empire has announced that Holby City actor Ben Richards and Hear’say singer Noel Sullivan will star in Rock of Ages the Musical.
After a three-year run in London’s West End, the musical will be staged at the High Street West venue from July 28 to August 2.
Ben Richards will star as rock god Stacee Jaxx. Noel stars alongside him as Drew Boley.
Rock of Ages is a celebration of classic 1980s rock culture and tells the story of a small town girl and a big city rocker falling in love to the greatest songs of the decade.
The score includes We Built This City, The Final Countdown, I Wanna Know What Love Is and Don’t Stop Believin’.
Following the musical’s onstage success around the globe, a star-studded movie version of the show was released in 2012. It starred, among others, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
