Middle School Musical Rocks On

By BB&N January 13, 2023

The recurring question in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock is always “do the kids really play their own instruments? Can they really sing?” The answer in every production is always “yes,” and the Middle School’s production is no exception. Director Christa Crewdson and her students put on a heart-pumping rock show that by the end, had the whole audience shouting, “School of Rock!”

This show follows the exploits of down-on-his-luck Dewey (Amo Forman) and a group of over-achieving students who learn the meaning of life through rock ‘n’ roll while training to compete in the Battle of the Bands. Tensions rise and fall between Dewey and uptight Principal Mullins (Princess Adeoye) and hesitant students Summer, Zoe, and Lawrence as he tries to convert them to the rock ‘n’ roll way of life. 

The chemistry of the ensemble cast and stand-out solos marked a foot-tapping, fist-pumping performance that would have had any rock n’ roll groupie swooning.
