York, are you ready to rock?

Hit musical Rock Of Ages opened on Tuesday night (September 2) at the Grand Opera House. To celebrate two of the stars Cordelia Farnworth and Noel Sullivan went for an impromptu open air jam.

Following a busy week in Woking, Surrey, the show is in York until Saturday, September 6 before moving off to Southampton.

The story focuses on two ambitious teenagers with big dreams who end up falling in love.

Noel, who plays Drew Boley, told us: “This is the first national tour of the show.” For the last three years Rock Of Ages has been playing to appreciative houses in London’s West End.

Cordelia, who plays Sherrie Christian, spoke about how much every audience enjoys the show and said teenagers particularly relate to her character.

  Rock Of Ages is at the York Grand Opera House until Saturday, September 6

  Evening performances are at 7.30pm, with matinees on Friday and Saturday

  Tickets are £10 – £35. More details on the theatre website
