A bit of Broadway is coming to Hampton Roads.

The Hurrah Players are presenting the hit musical "School of Rock" this week!

"School of Rock" is a brand new musical based on the famous Paramount film written by Mike White, which starred Jack Black.

The musical 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. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.

The stage musical currently on Broadway is produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who has composed 14 new songs to create a score, which also features all of the original songs from the movie.
