School of Rock: most of you probably think of the movie starring Jack Black or the new tv show, but it's also a musical. I had the chance to go see the musical recently and I loved it. Here's a short summary of what its about. ¨Mr. Schneebly¨, a former rock band member, decides to become a substitute teacher at Horace Green school. While teaching at Horace Green, Mr.Schneebly discovers that the students can play instruments. So Mr. Schneebly decides to form a rock band with the kids. Once everyone has a part in the band, the school of rock starts to practice in hopes of winning the battle of the bands. As you can imagine, this did not go over well with the kid's parents, but after a series of events the band ends up at the battle of the bands. Not only did Mr. Schneebly help the kids, the kids helped Mr. Schneebly.
One of my favorite things about the performance was that most the kids performed their instruments live. During most of the songs the kids played their instruments including bass, keyboard, drums and guitar. I also really enjoyed the off script jokes that they included. The show was a funny, emotional, and relatable storyline. I would definitely recommend seeing the musical to anyone or if you can't see the musical definitely check the movie out.
