SCHOOL OF ROCK
JUNE 9 -26
The City of Cleveland Heights and Cain Park is proud to announce the regional premier of
SCHOOL OF ROCK.
Based on the Paramount movie, SCHOOL OF ROCK follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn some extra 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 finding out? The Tony-nominated smash hit includes all of the original songs from the movie plus new music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and book by Julian Fellowes.
The production will feature local actor Douglas F. Bailey in the role of Dewey Finn. Bailey previously appeared at Cain Park in Godspell, Rock of Ages, and Memphis (2018 Cleveland Critics Circle winner, Best Actor in a Musical). SCHOOL OF ROCK is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music.
