Rock of Ages exploded into Nelson’s city council chambers Monday night, performed one song, and were gone, leaving everyone happily reeling. One council member called for more, but the dancers and singers had disappeared, leaving the room to politics and public administration.

Council starts each of its monthly Committee of the Whole meetings with a performance from a local artist. They’ve hosted singers, musicians, craftspeople, dancers, and poets.

Black Productions’ Rock of Ages runs May 26 to 29 at the Capitol Theatre.
