Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme…You better get me to school on time! Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock is a two-hour, two-act show (plus intermission), based on the hit movie. This tuner follows Dewey Finn (Robert L. Escamilla), 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 (Rebecca Miller) finding out? Join us at the Uptown Theater this summer to find out with this rock-and-roll adventure. And yes… the kids really do play instruments! 

School of Rock the Musical is rated PG-13 for occasional adult language. 

We believe theatre should be accessible to the people who live in our community and GPAC provides scheduled sensory friendly performances for each of our productions. Please contact us at for more information.
