School (of Rock) is in Session
By Kitty JanvrinDec 28, 2017
How do you turn a group of haughty academics into bona fide headbangers? Just ask Dewey Finn, a struggling wannabe rocker whose extraordinary dreams distract him from mundane responsibilities like paying rent to his roommate Ned. When Dewey pretends to be Ned in order to take a job as a substitute teacher at an uppity prep school, his class gets an unforgettable lesson in rock 'n roll.
Based on the hit 2003 film starring Jack Black, School of Rock is a musical packed with energy and electric jams perfect for rockers young and old. Andrew Lloyd Webber's 14 new songs complement the original songs from the movie, creating the perfect soundtrack for you and your motley crew. The kids in the band are seriously talented. You too will be impressed with their solos, slaps, and knee slides.
