School of Rock: Broadway's High-Octane Musical Hit
SPOKANE, WA (May 3, 2019) – Broadway legend Andrew Lloyd Webber’s high-octane Broadway and West End hit School of Rock – The Musical is coming to Spokane's First Interstate Center for the Arts as a part of the STCU Best of Broadway series this May 8-12, 2019.

Based on the hit movie of the same title, School of Rock is a hilarious new musical that follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. While teaching these pintsized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
School of Rock features music from the original movie, as well as an original score byAndrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, a book by Julian Fellowes, choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter and direction by Laurence Connor.
School of Rock opened on Broadway to rave reviews in December 2015, followed by four Tony Awards nominations including Best Musical, Best Score (Lloyd Webber and Slater), Best Book (Fellowes), and Best Leading Actor in a Musical (Alex Brightman). The production also won the 2017 Olivier award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
School of Rock features scenic and costume design by Anna Louizos, lighting design byNatasha Katz, sound design by Mick Potter and music supervision by John Rigby.
School of Rock is produced on tour by Andrew Lloyd Webber for The Really Useful Group, Warner Music Group and Access Industries, The Shubert Organization and The Nederlander Organization.
