    About the Show:
    Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme…You better get me to school on time! Based on the hit movie with Jack Black, the tuner follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing at a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A pupils 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?

    The stage musical, co-written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, features 14 new songs for the show and includes 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!

    TeenSelect is a program for older and more experienced performers of an age range that will depend on the show selected, but is generally geared toward high school students. 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 show. TeenSelect runs in the fall and there is a tuition fee to participate. Rehearsals are six to eight weeks, the show runs for two to three weekends, and are professionally designed and directed. The emphasis is on the performer.

    About the Show:
    In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open, and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.

    Written by Broadway sensation Lin-Manuel Miranda, In the Heights is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Choreography, and Best Orchestrations.
