Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme…You better get me to school on time! Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock – The Musical is based on the hit movie. The tuner 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?

The cast includes 9f, 5m, 6 girls, 5 boys. Director Amanda Tuttle requests that you must be between the ages of 10-14 to play the kid; proficiency in playing musical rock instruments will be given preference when casting.

We will cast understudies for the principal roles. Total of 12-14 kids and 12-14 adults.

Age Range: Kids must be between ages 10 – 14. Actors ages 25-50 will be considered for the adult roles.


Click HERE to download character descriptions and vocal ranges and HERE to download an audition form to complete and bring with you to auditions. Audition forms will also be available at auditions.  Auditioners should bring a calendar that includes conflicts; we highly recommend that they come with a completed audition form that indicates ALL possible conflicts.

Auditioners may attach a resume and picture if preferred (not required). They will have their picture taken and an audition number assigned.

Auditions will consist of a music audition and (if auditioning for a speaking role) a cold reading audition. Auditioners will need to prepare a song excerpt (approx. 1-2 minutes) for your music audition. Music should be Disney, Broadway, or jazz standard-style, but NOT a song from School of Rock – The Musical. Auditioners may bring their phones with lyrics, a CD, or sheet music for our accompanist. The Director requests that auditioners do not sing a capella.
