ABOUT THE SHOW
School of Rock – The Musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.
- School of Rock is the first Andrew Lloyd Webber musical to receive its world premiere on Broadway rather than in London’s West End since Jesus Christ Superstar opened on Broadway in 1971.
- One of the original inspirations for the story of School of Rock was the Langley Schools Music Project, a 1976-77 collection of recordings of children's choruses from British Columbia singing pop hits by the Beach Boys, Paul McCartney, David Bowie and others.
This is a world-premiere production. It is based on the 2003 film of the same title.
