SCHOOL OF ROCK: Based on the Paramount movie by Mike White, Book by Julian Fellowes, Lyrics
by Glenn Slater, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
School of Rock is a brand new musical that 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, with its
sensational live kids’ rock band, is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music. May the
spirit of rock be with you!
