MECHANICAL REPAIRS By Julia Czerwonatis

Newlands College students are rocking the stage with their new musical production Rock of Ages. Reviving the 80s glam-rock area, the school got a massive collaboration including 250 people going, and now invites their classmates, parents and community friends to see the show. “The production is an epic example of me whakamatau,” Jerome Cargill, musical director and Newlands College teacher, said. Lead actors are Kiya Basabas (16), Kyran Van Asch (18) and Senuka Sudusinghe (15). Kyran said he was excited about the upcoming shows. He is playing,

Drew, a rockstar living in Los Angeles who wants to become famous and falls for wannabe actress Sherrie. “One of the coolest things will be the live band,” Kiya, who is playing Sherrie, said. Sherrie has a crush on rockstar Stacee, who is too preoccupied with his own ego to really notice Sherrie. “It took me a while to convincingly adapt the asshole manner from my character Stacee,” Senuka explained. “But now, when I’m on stage, I’m just Stacee and he is a really confident guy.” Everlasting tunes like Don’t stop believing, The Final Countdown, and I wanna rock accompany the story of Sherrie, Drew, and

Stacee. Kiya said the songs they were awesome. “The idea of the show is to dismiss the stigma of 80s music being trashy but to elevate and celebrate it,” Kiya explained. All three students said they thoroughly enjoyed being involved with Rock of Ages and want to be involved with music and acting productions in the future. “My mum used to be big in musical shows and has been supporting me through the auditioning and the rehearsals,” Kyran said.  The shows will be held Wednesday to Friday, June 30 to May 2, starting 7pm. Tickets cost $10 for students, and $15 for adults.
