School of Rock The Musical

School of Rock The Musical

November 11 - 20, 2022

Northbrook Theatre, 3323 Walters Ave, Northbrook, IL 60062

Based on the hit film, this hilarious musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing 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 pint-sized prodigies 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 all the original songs from the movie, this high-octane smash delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses! The Highland Park Players will be presenting the Adult/Full version of School Of Rock.

Based on the Paramount movie written by Mike White
Book by Julian Fellowes · Lyrics by Glenn Slater · Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
