Theatre Arlington presents School of Rock
Theatre Arlington’s 44th Season, Fun in the Footlights!, gets a jolt of energy with their first all-youth production of the season, School of Rock, based on the hit movie by Mike White.
Dewey Finn, a down-on-his-luck and wannabe rock star decides to earn a few bucks as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. What could be hard about that? Ignoring the rules and pleas of the school’s administration, Finn throws academia aside and creates his own curriculum, complete with guitar riffs, keyboard solos and jam sessions. Little does he know that his rebellious antics and creation of a kids’ rock band has inspired and empowered this group of over-scheduled prep students.
