School of Rock
April 12th @ 7:30 pm – April 15th @ 10:00 pm
Elgin’s much loved St. Giles’ Theatre Group present School of Rock.
The legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, renowned for bringing rock and romance to the London stage, returns with another heartwarming hit—SCHOOL OF ROCK. Hailed as a New York Times Critics’ Pick, Entertainment Weekly praises it as “an inspiring jolt of energy, joy, and mad skillz!”
In this hilarious musical adaptation of the beloved film, we follow the story of Dewey Finn, a down-on-his-luck wannabe rock star who tries to make some extra cash by pretending to be a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. In a whirlwind of electric riffs and snappy rhythms, Dewey transforms a group of straight-A students into an extraordinary rock band, all while imparting the true spirit of rock. As Dewey connects with the school’s stunning yet uptight headmistress, The New York Times warns, “be warned! There’s a love story in this one.”
With 14 fresh tunes from the maestro Andrew Lloyd Webber, plus all the original songs from the movie, SCHOOL OF ROCK is a thrilling blend of exhilarating guitar solos and heartwarming romance. The Daily News exclaims that Webber “awakens the empowering message of rock!” while Time Out New York declares, “School’s in—forever!”
