The Theatre South Playhouse is back with its second professional stage production of 2022. 

The playhouse will present "School of Rock: The Musical!" in June. 

The show follows 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. 

School of Rock will star Ronnie Gross as Dewey Finn, Jordan Grant as Rosalie Mullins, Aidan Wamsley as Ned Schneebly and Lindsay Steinberg as Patty Di Marco.

The cast also features fifteen children playing a variety of rock instruments live on stage.

Hillary Brook, executive director of the playhouse, and Maddie Lane are directing the performance, along with musical direction by Justin Smolik. 

"Producing great theatre with young actors is kind of what we are known for, so what better show to add to our professional season?" Brook said in a press release. "Similar to our sold out run of Matilda in the fall of 2019 before the pandemic, we want to combine great adult professionals with some outstanding young actors and musicians. After our hit run of Nunsense, we are hoping to continue to grow our audiences with the Orlando Premiere of School Of Rock!"

Nunsense was the organization's first professional performance of 2022 and took place in February.

School of Rock will run from June 16-26, at Theatre South Playhouse’s venue in Dr. Phillips, located at 7601 Della Drive, Suite #15. 

Tickets range from $25 to $35 and are available to purchase here.
