Greece Olympia Musical Theatre presents  Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock! (School Edition)

Greece Olympia Musical Theatre is excited to bring Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new hit musical School of Rock (School Edition) to the Rochester/Greece Community.

“Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme… You better get me to school on time!” School of Rock is based on the Jack Black hit movie of the same name. The story follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious preparatory school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress finding out?

Artistic direction by Jeff Andrews, best known in Rochester for his comedic performance, including Blackfriars’ Flight Before Christmas (writer/Mr. Wong) and his late-night sketch group Canary in a Coal Mine; choreography by the talented Abby Kate Heron, and musical direction by Karl-Erik Jansson and Aaron Staebell, also known in the community for their many musical talents. School of Rock, with its live kids’ rock band, of Greece Olympia students playing their instruments on stage, is a testimony to the transformative power of music.

Performance dates for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock are as follows:

Friday, January 19 at 7:00pm
Saturday, January 20 at 2:00 pm & 7:00pm
Friday, January 26 at 7:00pm
Saturday, January 27 at 2:00pm (ASL Interpreted) & 7:00pm
