School of Rock at Paramount Theatre

Are you ready to rock? Paramount Theatre’s 11th season finale is School of Rock, the fun-loving musical based on the popular Jack Black movie, from the genius mind of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Performances are April 12- June 4, 2023.

Wannabe rocker, Dewey Finn, has just been kicked out of his band, he can’t pay rent and his life is falling apart. When he scams his way into a teaching job meant for his roommate, Dewey turns a class of straight-A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. Dewey’s love of music and rock soon inspires the kids to pursue what they love. Based on the hit movie starring Jack Black, School of Rock inspires, entertains and flat-out rocks.

Suggested for ages 10+. Tickets start at just $28.
