Tease your hair and get your cutoff shirts ready. The worldwide party musical Rock of Ages brings favorite hits from the 1980s to the stage at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Penn State's Eisenhower Auditorium.

A five-time Tony Award nominee, Rock of Ages is an arena-rock love story told through the hits of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake and other popular bands.

Tickets for the Jan. 22 Center for the Performing Arts presentation of the touring Broadway musical are still available.

Rock of Ages is set in 1987. On the Sunset Strip, a small-town woman meets a big-city rocker. In Los Angeles' most famous rock club, they fall in love to the greatest songs of the 1980s.

The show features 28 songs, including "Don't Stop Believin'," "We Built This City," "The Final Countdown," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Here I Go Again," "Can't Fight This Feeling" and "I Want to Know What Love Is."

Because of the costumes, dancing and language, Rock of Ages might not be appropriate for kids younger than 14.

Artistic Viewpoints, an informal moderated discussion featuring a touring artist, is offered in Eisenhower one hour before the performance and is free for ticket holders. Artistic Viewpoints often fills to capacity. Seating is available on a first-arrival basis.
