Based on the 2003 hit film of the same name, “School of Rock — The Musical” will make its way to the Wharton Center for Performing Arts’ stage this September. Guests interested in the rock comedy can now purchase tickets which start at $35.
“‘School of Rock — The Musical’ opened on Broadway to rave reviews on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2015. This Ben Brantley New York Times ‘Critics’ Pick’ is an inspiring jolt of energy and mad skillz,” said Jesse Oxfeld of Entertainment Weekly, who gave the show four stars.
The show follows the story of Dewey Finn, a failed rock star who decides to get some extra money by pretending to be a substitute teacher. His first gig is at a prestigious prep school where he turns his class into a bonafide band.
