Root for the Dreamer with Heart and Soul During School of Rock: The Musical

After blowing out the speakers on Broadway, School of Rock finally hits the road, coming to Omaha next week! Based on the classic movie starring Jack Black, this blockbuster musical follows hilarious slacker Dewey Finn as he leads a classroom of nerdy misfits to rock stardom. Will he teach these kids a thing or two about rock and roll? Find out when you catch School of Rock: The Musical live at Orpheum Theater next Wednesday night!

Rock star wannabe Dewey Finn is down on his luck. He's just been kicked out of his own band No Vacancy for his over-the-top on-stage antics, and his landlord is threatening eviction unless he coughs up his overdue rent. Desperate for money, he disguises himself as a substitute music teacher to land a position at a well-to-do prep school. When he meets his new class, an idea begins to form. A local Battle of the Bands competition is looming, featuring none other than No Vacancy, and Dewey sees a chance for both revenge and a proper shot at rock stardom!

“School of Rock is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best show in years!” – New York Post

School of Rock was Andrew Lloyd Webber's first show to launch on Broadway, and it proved to be a monster hit for the legendary composer. Featuring a cast of uber-talented kids (who all play their instruments live), it includes songs from the movie, as well as a load of brand-new compositions. Bursting with energy and heart, School of Rock is a celebration of following your dreams and, of course, sticking it to the man!
