AUSTIN FILM SOCIETY SCREENINGS:

School of Rock the Musical Print E-mail
Wednesday, 14 February 2018 01:22

By Amy Elizondo

There aren't enough words to describe how amazing watching the School of Rock the Musical live really is. Based on the film of the same name, School of Rock follows the journey of Dewey Finn, a down on his luck wannabe rock-star. Needing cash fast, he feigns to be his roommate and best friend, Ned, in order to land a job as a substitute teacher at a prestigious school. Through this farce, Dewey manages to create a rock band out of the school children and enters them all in a "Battle of the Bands" competition. When his true identity comes to light, it's up to the kids to keep the band together and get to the stage at the competition in time to rock out.

Although the entire cast is fantastic, the children are the actors who truly stood out. Their talent is mind-blowing. It is difficult to fathom how they are able to sing and play instruments, all the while, acting and dancing. School of Rock is already a fairly light and comical musical, but the children adds a layer of whimsy to it. I enjoyed seeing the way in which the child actors interacted on stage with the adult actors. It's obvious that they were all having a great time and, in turn, so does the audience,

There isn't a Broadway show with a light show as spectacular as the one that you will see here. For a moment, I actually forgot that I was in a theater because it felt like I was at an actual rock concert. With hit songs and music and lyrics composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Slater, respectively, School of Rock is without a doubt a major hit the entire family can enjoy.

School of Rock runs through Sunday, February 18th. For more information, call (512) 471-4453 or to buy tickets, click here!

School of Rock Comes To Austin Print E-mail

School of Rock is now a musical, for Broadway and it will make it's way to Bass Concert Hall next week. With songs from the movie as well as an original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Glenn Slater, it's bound to be as just much fun as the 2003 film of the same name.

Based of the hit film by Richard Linklater that lives right here in Austin, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed rock star who takes over his roommate's substitute teaching gig when he poses as him. In doing this, he turns a class of straight A students into a hard core guitar rock band. While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it truly means to rock out, Dewey falls for the uptight headmistress, helping her to rediscover her own love for rock within.

School of Rock - The Musical opened on Broadway to rave reviews back on December 6, 2015. It was nominated for four Tony Awards in 2016, including Best Musical, Best Score (Lloyd Webber and Slater), Best Book, and Best Leading Actor in a Musical. It has also wond the 2017 Oliver Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.

School of Rock runs from Tuesday, February 13th through Sunday, February 18th. For more information, call (512) 471-4453 or to buy tickets, click here!
