Rock got no reason, Rock got no rhyme…You better get me to school on time! Based on the hit movie starring Jack Black, School of Rock the Musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed wannabe rock star who turns a class of straight-A pupils at a prestigious prep school 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?
With its sensational live kids’ rock band, this show is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music. Join 23 Elephants Theatre Company in pledging allegiance to rock! The production opened on Friday, but you still have plenty of chances to see this fantastic show at the Playhouse in San Anselmo, with additional performances today at 2 pm, next Friday, April 27 at 7:30 pm, Saturday, April 28 at 2 and 7:30 pm, and Sunday April 29 at 2 pm.
We had a chance to see School of Rock the Musical this weekend and had a great time! The fantastic young cast performed their roles with aplomb, singing, acting, and even playing their instruments. The musical is fun, funny, and moves at a quick pace. With lively and rocking songs by music legend Andrew Lloyd Webber, it's a fun show for the entire family. We highly recommend it! The Playhouse in San Anselmo is a wonderful intimate venue that puts everyone close to the stage and into the action—there are no bad seats.
