Based on the 2003 hit film, this hilarious musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to pose as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. While teaching these mini stars what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
Featuring new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and original songs from the movie, this musical delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses.
