Maine Theatre Holding Auditions for Popular Musical ‘School of Rock’
Who remembers Jack Black in "School of Rock"?
It is an all-time favorite movie for so many. Magic always happens when Jack Black steps in front of the screen with his hilarious characteristics and banter. He is such a natural and brought all of us so many laughs in that movie.
Because the 2003 hit movie was wildly popular, a musical was created by the great, Andrew Lloyd Webber, according to Omaha Performing Arts.
Webber hadn't been composing since 1971 and then made a "legendary comeback" with
"School of Rock, The Musical," as the blog states.
Also stated on the website is that the musical features songs from the movie as well as 14 new songs that were created just for this show.
This caught fire and the show has performed on Broadway and all across the nation. And now, it will be premiering at Lewiston/Auburn's very own Community Little Theatre.
According to the Facebook page, auditions will be held this weekend, May 15 and 16. The production will debut this summer. The musical is the same as the hit movie, but with more music! Who wouldn't want that?
CLT explains the story on their Facebook Page,
Based on the 2003 movie, School of Rock – The Musical tells the story of Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn extra money by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There, Dewey turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can Dewey get them to the “Battle of the Bands” without their parents and the school’s leadership finding out?
