ABOUT THE SHOW

School of Rock
A musical comedy based on the Paramount movie by Mike White
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lyrics by Glenn Sater, Book by Julian Fellowes

Directed by Sue Wallin
Musical Direction by Ron Hazelett

In this musical comedy based on the hit movie of the same name, we meet Dewey Finn, a failed, wanna-be 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 students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can he get the youngsters to the Battle of the Bands before the parents and the school find out?

CASTING REQUIREMENTS

We are seeking to cast a diverse cast of male and female performers between the ages of 9 and 18.

Looking to cast the following roles with performers that also play instruments, if possible.  Dewey- guitar,  the band No Vacancy- guitar, bass, and drums, Zack Mooenyham- guitar, Lawrence- keyboard, Katie- Bass, and Freddie- percussion. 

WHAT TO PREPARE FOR THE AUDITION

Please prepare 32 bars of music of a song in the style of the show.  Please bring sheet music for your song (in the appropriate key) with you to the audition; an accompanist will be provided.

For performers auditioning to play an instrument: Please film a one- to two-minute video that shows your talent playing the drums, guitar, bass and/or keyboards (pop/rock genre preferred).

ABOUT THE SHOW

The Who's Tommy
Book by Des McAnuff and Pete Townshend
Music and lyrics by Pete Townshend
Additional music and lyrics by John Entwhistle and Keith Moon

Directed by Fred Gloor
Choreography by Joshua Larkin
Musical Direction by John Ebner

Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who's Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit. The story of the pinball-playing, deaf, dumb and blind boy who triumphs over his adversities has inspired, amazed and puzzled audiences for more than 40 years. This five-time Tony Award-winning musical was translated to the stage by theatrical wizard, Des McAnuff, into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event.

After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother's lover by his father, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia and, as the boy grows, he suffers abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. As an adolescent, he's discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball and, when his mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he becomes an international pinball superstar.

CASTING REQUIREMENTS

We are seeking to cast a diverse cast of talented and committed performers ages 16 and older — except for two younger performers to portray Tommy at different ages (one as a 4- to 6-year-old and one slightly older as a 10- to 12-year-old). For these roles, parents are urged to familiarize themselves with the material in advance of the auditions. You can find a copy of the script HERE

A breakdown of the show's character's can be found on the auditions SignUp page.
