School of Rock Starts the New Semester in Dallas!!!
Tue, 08/21/2018 - 10:56am
School of Rock educated everyone in the audience last night!!!
What a way for kids and grown-ups to start the school year!!
School of Rock is an endearing story of an unsuccessful (so far) rock musician whose life seems to be stagnating....until he masquerades as a friend and takes a substitute teaching job under false pretenses just for the money!
As the story progresses, Dewey grows into his role, and his students find that there is life outside the classroom for their unique individual talents!
The cast never lets the momentum down, and School of Rock is a rollicking good time for all!
There are also lessons for parents in School of Rock about expectations and reality of what children need. It is a lovely way to show those lessons.
I must say here that I think the number sung by the school principal, Rosalie, should be hailed as the Baby Boomer generation....Where Did the Rock Go? is a perfect song for the aging Boomers!
For a great way to kick off a new school year and create a positive feeling about classes, go see School of Rock!!
Based on the hit film, School of Rock – The 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 pintsized prodigies
what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress (who happens to love music by Stevie Nicks), helping her rediscover the wild child within.
I loved it and recommend it for your student, your parent, or your Boomer grandparents!!!
