Tony nominee and American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis, who appears as “Drew” in the hit hair-metal musical Rock of Ages at Ruth Eckerd Hall, meets the most famous of Busch Gardens’ Animal Ambassadors team, Harry the sloth.
Maroulis and members of the cast spent the day relaxing at the adventure park, enjoying up-close animal experiences and riding roller coasters.
Thanks to its thick, shaggy hair, the sloth has an unusual, symbiotic relationship with algae, which grows on its coat and aids in camouflaging the sloth as it hangs from tree branches.
Rock of Ages is the story of a small town girl and a big city rocker falling in love to the greatest songs of the '80s. This five-time 2009 Tony Award nominee is an arena-rock love story told through the hits of Poison, Journey, Night Ranger, STYX, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and many more. It performs through January 23rd at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. For ticking information visit www.RuthEckerdHall.com
