‘School of Rock’ Opening
The Sioux Empire Community Theatre, The Y and The Harrisburg Performing Arts Center are proud to bring you Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock.
This musical is based on the feature film starring Jack Black. However, this show consists of 100% kids. All participants are under 18. Pretty impressive.
In a press release from SECT the show is described as follows:
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. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 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!
The show is rated PG-13, so keep that in mind when bringing the kiddos.
The show opens July 14th with shows to follow through Sunday, July 17th. The following week, performances are Wednesday the 20th through Saturday the 23rd. All showtimes are 7pm except for a 2pm Saturday matinee on the 17th.
While most community theater productions in the Sioux Empire are at the Orpheum Theater, this performance will be at Harrisburg High School, 1300 Willow Street, Harrisburg, SD 57032.
Tickets are available to reserve anytime online at siouxfallstheatre.com , by phone 605-360-4800 or in person Mondays - Fridays from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm at the Orpheum box office.
