PLOT:

Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme…You better get me to school on time!” Based on the hit movie, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe 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 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?

 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

Adult Roles: 

DEWEY FINN

An uptight and highly strung headmistress of an elite school. Driven by success and prestige. However, inside lives a caged, rock and roll lover. Strong belt required.

NED SCHNEEBLY
Vocal Range: Baritone, C3-F#4

Ned is an old friend of Dewey’s, and the two currently share a flat with Ned’s girlfriend Patti.

Ned is still passionate about his music, but tends to let his bossy girlfriend Patty tell him what to do.

PATTY DI MARCO

Confident and outspoken, Summer is the ideal manager for the band. Ambitious and very clever, she hopes that winning Battle of the Bands will look good on her college application.

ZACK MOONEYHAM
Vocal Range: A3-D5
Onstage Guitar

Zack is the band’s lead guitarist and also a talented songwriter. He desperately wants to impress his father, who’s usually too busy with work to take an interest in his family.

FREDDIE HAMILTON
Vocal Range: A3-D5
Onstage Drums

Freddie loves a bit of rowdiness and noise, making him a great drummer. His own father doesn’t see his ability, constantly belittling his son.

KATIE

Onstage Bass

Katie is a quiet, serious girl who keeps mostly to herself. She plays the cello at school, but is quick to pick up the bass at Dewey’s encouragement. She is stone-faced when she plays, and takes her instrument and the band very seriously, although not as much as Summer takes managing.

MASON
Vocal Range: A3-D5

James is tough and reliable, making him a good security guard for the band. Mostly, he keeps an eye out for anyone coming while the band is secretly rehearsing!

SOPHIE & MADISON
Vocal Range: A3-D5

Sophie and Madison are technically the band’s roadies, but also serve as backup dancers during performances.
