Ashley Spencer (Grease, Priscilla...) joins the cast of Broadway's Rock of Ages in the role of Sherrie beginning May 11 at the Helen Hayes Theatre.
Emily Padgett, who had performed the role since November 2011, played her final performance May 1. During the interim week, the role was covered alternately by Katie Webber and Tessa Alves.
A finalist on the NBC talent competition series "Grease: You're The One That I Want," Spencer was recently seen on Broadway as Diva in the original cast of Priscilla Queen of the Desert; her other Broadway credits include Sandy in Grease and Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray.
The musical comedy Rock of Ages borrows rock hits of the 1980s to tell the story of showbiz lovers in L.A. The score includes "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is," "Here I Go Again," "Don't Stop Believin'" and more.
