My husband and I had a wonderful date night on opening night of School of Rock, The Musical in Cincinnati. It truly was an amazing show with a wonderful cast and some great music and fun to go with it!

If you have watched the movie School of Rock you will know what a wonderful cast it had. The movie was amazing and I wasn’t sure if we would love the Broadway Musical the same way! Well, there was nothing to worry about because the show was phenomenal. They announced before the show that the kids would be really playing the instruments and I was happy to know that because I would have been wondering.
This is a musical for all ages. I truly can’t think of an age group that wouldn’t enjoy this one! It has amazing music, wonderful humor and the kids talent will blow your mind. It is certaintly similar to the movie but adds more scenes with the parents, and adds a little more references to today’s pop culture to make it relevant for 2018. Of course it is a musical so you will hear more songs and extra scenes for music!
This is a high energy show that makes you want to jump up out of your seat! The show was given a standing ovation and rightfully so! We had a wonderful time and so glad we went!
The play runs from February 21st-March 4th 2018! Don’t miss your chance to see this one!
Check out the trailer to see what the play is all about!
More About The Musical
Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. This high-octane smash features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie and musical theater’s first-ever kid’s rock band playing their instruments live on stage. The play runs from February 21-March 4th.
The cast of School of Rock includes Rob Colletti as Dewey, Lexie Dorsett Sharp as Rosalie, Matt Bittner as Ned, Emily Borromeo as Patty and Deidre Lang as Ms. Sheinkopf.
Directed by Laurence Connor, School of Rock was nominated for four 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. The musical continues to play Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre and the West End’s New London Theatre. The show’s score includes such popular songs as “When I Climb to the Top of Mount Rock,” “You’re in the Band,” “Stick It to the Man” and “School of Rock.”
