We Rock with Some Talented Kids
The Balancing Act goes behind the scenes with School of Rock, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s high-octane Broadway hit is rocking cities across America!
Based on the hit film starring Jack Black, the musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. And the pint-sized prodigies can all teach us a thing or two about balancing their young careers and life on the road.
Follow Balancing Act correspondent Amber Milt as she receives some inspiring messages from the young cast members and some fascinating background information from the crew.
