SYNOPSIS: Based on the hit film starring Jack Black, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s strict headmistress finding out? Dewey isn’t a real teacher - and his students may not pass any math tests soon - but they still learn plenty from each other in this fun, rollicking musical from Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita), Glenn Slater (Sister Act, The Little Mermaid) and Julian Fellowes (Mary Poppins, Downton Abbey).
SEEKING: A large ensemble of adults (high school through retirement & beyond!) and youth (3rd-9th grade) to play a variety of principal and ensemble roles, listed on the following page. Youth instrumentalists HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to audition, regardless of acting experience, though not required for roles. Auditions will consist of singing, a short dance combination, and possible cold read from the script. If you play an instrument, we’d love to see it!
PLEASE NOTE: while these and many of the roles we currently encounter have been written along a gender binary, we are committed to an open and inclusive casting process and encourage performers to audition for any role they identify with. This is a show about being yourself & there’s nothing more rock & roll.
