“The cast is full of talented, young, eager performers who are well-equipped to perform classic American songs favored worldwide.”
WHO: Peelee Clark, Director/Choreographer
WHAT: “It’s the end of the 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness aspiring rock star Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing, but the fairy-tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into another capitalist strip mall.”
WHERE: SpaceTriplex (Venue 38)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
As part of the American High School Theatre Festival, this is my second time bringing our theatre company to the Fringe after getting our start at the 2013 Capital Fringe in Washington D.C. with an original piece called Urban Legends.
In 2015 we performed The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee to sold out audiences at Space Triplex (V 38).
Tell us about your show.
Coming off a very successful season which included School of Rock (regional premiere), American Idiot, Night of the Living Dead and Billy Elliot, which won the National Capital Area Cappies Award for Best Musical at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, we are ready to melt your face off with Rock of Ages.
Rock of Ages by Chris D’Arienzo and Ethan Popp is a highly demanding show, representing the perfect challenge for Beyond the Page.
Each individual who is a part of the production has the necessary talent and drive to pull off such a musical. This show caters to the strengths of our company as a whole and is sure to have the audience rocking in their seats. The cast is full of talented, young, eager performers who are well-equipped to perform classic American songs favored worldwide.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Without a doubt Trainspotting Live. This immersive, in-yer-face theatre company performs one of the most disgusting and offensive, passionate plays I’ve ever had the privilege to see. This year will be my third time seeing it and I cannot wait. Unfortunately it’s a bit rated R for my students.
However, if my students were asked this question, they would say Bruce. The two actors that manipulate the most adorable yellow block of foam have the best comic timing and we were in stitches when we saw them in 2015. Our entire cast and crew will be in the audience this time around.
