ABOUT THE SHOW:
Onstage, the adaptation features a not-so-secret sauce, the kids in the rock band actually play their musical instruments – very well. The young actors’ musical skills are showcased several times in exuberant rock numbers like “You’re in the Band,” “Stick It to the Man” and one song retained from the movie, “Teacher’s Pet.”
Lloyd Webber, along with book writer Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), lyricist Glenn Slater and director Laurence Connor, have taken Richard Linklater’s 2003 film – which made Jack Black a star – and given it new life onstage.
“You wouldn’t really think that it’s 10 and 11 year-olds!” Lloyd Webber said. “I mean, it’s extraordinary for their age, just how great they are, and how together they play.”
Lloyd Webber says he discovered his love of music and theater at about the same age as the kids in the show. And, he adds, School of Rock represents a coming home, of sorts. His first big hit was the rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, which he wrote when he was just 22.
School of Rock is the story of an outrageous rock star wannabe, Dewey Finn, who works his way into a substitute teaching job at a private school. Dewey puts together a rock band with his students to compete against adults in a Battle of the Bands contest – and changes everyone’s lives, as a result.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
