School of Rock

School of Rock

Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme…You better get me to school on time!  The tuner follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as 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?  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 all who pledge allegiance to Lloyd Webber’s newest hit!

Purchase Tickets

COVID-19 UPDATE:  This show has been postponed.  Please know that this decision was complex and not made lightly.  Unfortunately, this decision had to be made early in because we felt it would be very unfair to our cast and crew to have them work for 8 weeks on a show that may or may not happen in October, especially in the 1200-seat Missouri Theatre.  It is important for us to keep our cast, production crews, and patrons safe.  Please know that this is an exciting show and one we still want to produce.  We plan to announce new dates for this show as soon as we are able.  The royalty companies are working as fast as they can to accommodate the many requests coming from theater companies from around the globe and as soon as we are able to secure the new dates, we will announce them!  
We currently continue to produce and perform shows at the Ruby Theatre.  We monitor and adopt the best practices/recommendations for theaters and our procedures have proven to keep our patrons safe and comfortable through the past ten public performances at the Ruby Theatre.  Our full safety precautions and procedures for each show can be found on our website.  We thank you for your continued support…We are you…We are your community theatre!
