School Of Rock: The Musical

Since school started, our weekend schedules have been anything but relaxing. Siella and Ryder are both on soccer teams, with one playing a game on a Saturday, while the other plays on Sunday, preceded by church and CCD class back to back. With all the running around, we really haven’t had time to do much else, but last weekend I scored some tickets for the four of us to see School Of Rock The Musical!

Having grown up in New York and still living here, I sometimes take Broadway for granted. We are so fortunate to have these amazing shows, loaded with talent at our finger tips. Ryder and Siella have been seeing shows since they were toddlers, and Gemma experienced her first show just a few months ago and loved it.

I’ve been hearing rave reviews about this show from friends and readers, and let me tell you, they were all spot on. We were blown away by the raw talent of the cast and crew. I will say as a parent there were a few words that I thought were a little inappropriate for my kiddies, but I will say it went over their heads!

The show is based on the film, School of Rock, tells the story of wannabe rock star Dewey Finn, who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. When he discovers his students’ musical talents, he enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and conquer the Battle of the Bands. All of the children play their own instruments, so not only are they acting and singing, but they’re jamming too. Truly talented! Since most of the cast were kids, my little ones were totally fascinated watching the show!

At the end, the cast members came out to sign the Playbills! This was so up Siella’s alley, and she made sure to get everyone’s signature!

With Jason out of town for work, I was worried about taking three crazies to a Broadway Musical by myself. I knew Ryder and Siella would be into it, but Gemma can be unpredictable. Somehow we only had one trip to the bathroom, and she smiled ear to ear for the entire performance. On the subway ride home, we chatted about our favorite characters, and what’s it’s probably like to be a child performer on Broadway. They were surprisingly inquisitive on how it all worked – school, practices, learning their lines. And since then, Siella is now determined to cross off every show in her Playbill. I cannot wait for our next show! Broadway shows are truly a magical experience.
