This is the time of the year when the pre-tour work really starts to pick up steam. With just three months until opening night, we are busy finalizing this season’s show and working hard on adding more dates to our tour schedule.
In celebration of our 15th anniversary as Twelve Twenty-Four, we have decided to have a professional group photograph taken to mark this milestone year. So before next week’s rehearsal, we are getting ourselves all gussied up and heading to some scenic spots for this cool photo shoot.
November and the start of our 15th season will be here before you know it!
You read that correctly, several members of Twelve Twenty-Four are part of the cast of Rock of Ages coming to the Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre in September. Set in the late 1980s, Rock of Ages is the musical story of an aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew, who longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall.
Our new Twelve Twenty-Four vocalist, Joey James, plays the role of Drew and is also the show’s musical director. Guitarist Jason “JBird” Santos and bassist Dirk Yahraes have signed on as two of the monster rockers in the show’s band, Arsenal.
We invite you to join Joey, JBird, Dirk, and the entire Rock of Ages cast, as they take a trip back to the 1980s and relive that decade through the music of artists like REO Speedwagon, Journey, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake and many others.
We are excited to release the first set of tentative tour dates for our 15th Anniversary Holiday Tour. And yes, we WILL be adding more dates to the tour schedule as we confirm them with the venues.
All dates, times, and venues are subject to change.
For up-to-date tour dates, and forthcoming ticket sales information, please keep visiting our Facebook page and the Schedule section of our main website at www.twelvetwentyfour.net. We will post tour and ticketing updates on both of these sites as they become available.
We cannot wait to see all of you…it is less than five months from opening night! In the meantime, enjoy the upcoming July 4th holiday…snow will be here before you know it.
