MANILA, Philippines - After her much-praised performance for ABS-CBN's recently concluded series "Nasaan Ka Elisa?," actress-singer Vina Morales is gearing for her biggest break on stage.

Morales said she will be part of the local production of the Broadway hit musical "Rock of Ages" with international Pinoy rockstar Mig Ayesa as Stacee Jaxx.

"I'm doing a play but I cannot say yet kung ano ang gagawin ko but very challenging at ang cast talagang 'oh my God' talagang kaabang-abang. Alam kong mahirap na mag-trabaho sa theater pero this is one of my dreams. May sing and dance so lalo akong papayat. I'm really looking forward," Morales exclusively told ABS-CBN News.

"Rock of Ages" is a jukebox musical inspired by the hits from the 1980s. The musical features songs from Styx, Journey and Bon Jovi, among others.

A movie adaptation of "Rock of Ages," starring actor Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx, will hit theaters this 2012. -Report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
