On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Jonathan Roxmouth who stars in the new musical Great Balls Of Fire that tells the story of Jerry Lee Lewis.
Great Balls Of Fire.
Jonathan Roxmouth once again joins forces with acclaimed director and choreographer Weslee Swain Lauder, after they enjoyed huge success staging the sell-out concert THE MUSICALS at the Teatro at Montecasino.
Jerry Lee Lewis is widely regarded as the Real Wild Child of Rock ’n Roll. Since his meteoric rise to fame in the 1950’s, Lewis has established himself as a performer of unbridled energy, passion and unmistakable piano pyrotechnics – literally and musically. Whether driving audiences wild with his distinctive pumping piano style or setting the piano alight, the story of Jerry Lee Lewis is as fascinating as the string of gold records to his name.
The show features Buddy Holly Stalwart Craig Urbani as Sam Philips and Paul Ditchfield of The Bats as Elmo Lewis. Cranking up the temperature is Ashleigh Butcher (Rock of Ages, The Rocky Horror Show, The Adventures of Peppa Pig) as Myra Gale Lewis.
