The youth edition of "School of Rock", Andrew Lloyd Webber's current Broadway Tony nominated hit musical, is on stage through August 28 at The Media Theatre. With performances on Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 7pm, and Sundays at 3pm, "School of Rock" features a young cast playing all the roles and singing the memorable score with songs like "You're In The Band" and "Stick It To The Man".

Based on the Jack Black comic film, "School of Rock" focuses on a washed up rocker (played by Owen Mannion during the show's first three weekends and Sean Lock the final weekend) who poses as a school teacher and transforms his classroom into a rock band. It's all about the transforming power of music and hits upon the fact that education should, in the eyes of many, feature more music classes and programs. 

"School of Rock" is humorous, but also has heartfelt moments particularly when a few of the children are ignored by their parents and burst into song with "If Only You Would Listen".
