Class is now in session! Broadway legend Andrew Lloyd Webber’s high-octane Broadway and West End hit School of Rock – The Musical comes to Nashville for a one-week engagement Sept. 11-16. Based on the 2003 hit film of the same name, School of Rock – The Musical is a hilarious new musical that 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 pintsized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
School of Rock – The Musical opened on Broadway to rave reviews on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2015. This Ben Brantley New York Times Critics’ Pick “is an inspiring jolt of energy and mad skillz,” raves Jesse Oxfeld of Entertainment Weekly. And in his four-star Critics’ Pick review, Time Out’s David Cote proclaimed, “School’s IN – forever!”
Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 29, at 10 a.m. at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040 and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.
