AUDITIONS

for

SCHOOL of ROCK

 

Lewiston-Auburn Community Little Theatre is looking for a diverse slate of performers for its summer 2022 production, School of Rock – The Musical. Based on the 2003 movie starring Jack Black, School of Rock – The Musical tells the story of 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, Dewey turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can Dewey get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s leadership finding out? With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, this musical features 14 new songs as well as songs from the movie. 

  

There are roles for performers who are working on their QUADRUPLE threat skills – singing, dancing, acting AND playing a musical instrument. Looking for performers who can pass for 11-14 years old for the student ensemble – 4+ members of the student ensemble should play instruments very well (piano, bass, drums, and both rock and acoustic guitar).  

  

Performers who would like to be considered for the roles of Zach (guitar), Freddy (drums), Katie (cello and bass) and Lawrence (piano and keyboard) should prepare to play the instrument. Instruments will be provided. These 4 roles will be cast based on musicianship and not gender expression, ethnicity or cultural heritage / background.  

In keeping with CLT Covid Protocols (https://www.laclt.com/covid-19-protocols),  

“all members of each cast and crew, as well as all CLT leaders are required to be vaccinated for COVID."  

All performers will need to show proof of vaccination at the School of Rock auditions.
