School of Rock is a New York Times Critics’ Pick and “an inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz!” - Entertainment Weekly. Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. This high-octane smash features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie and musical theater’s first-ever kids rock band playing their instruments live on stage. Vanity Fair raves, “fists of all ages shall be pumping!”

Run  Time: 2 Hours and 30 Minutes
