SummerStock is a production program open to all students. Students with all levels of experience are encouraged to audition. Directed, designed, and produced by adult theatre professionals, the intensive rehearsal process includes script analysis, character development, learning choreography and staging, and strengthening the vocal instrument. The result of this program is a fully-produced musical that is performed on the main stage at the Francis J. Gaudette Theatre.
School of Rock is a brand new musical based on the famous Paramount film written by Mike White, which starred Jack Black. 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. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. The stage musical on Broadway is produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who has composed 14 new songs to create a score, which also features all of the original songs from the movie. School of Rock, with its sensational live kids’ rock band, is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music. May the spirit of rock be with you!
School of Rock is an exciting and unique opportunity for KIDSTAGE this year. As we produce this show, it currently is also running live on Broadway in NYC. This show has several principle roles, as well as many featured roles for young performers, some of which have to play live instruments onstage. Total cast size will be 40-45 with a strong and heavily featured ensemble. The brand new rock score provides opportunities and challenges for both new and experienced singers alike.
