Comedies and musicals make many people’s favorites list, even better when they come neatly together in the same package. “School of Rock” does just that and hits Austin in February for a limited time, but buy your tickets before then! They will go fast and are on sale now.

You might have seen the film version of this heart-warming story, but see it play out live in this musical production. The Lexus Broadway in Austin brings us “School of Rock” presented by Texas Performing Arts between February 13 – 18, 2018, Tuesday – Friday at 8 p.m.; Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Sunday at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m at Bass Concert Hall, 2350 Robert Dedman Drive, Austin, TX 78712.

Tickets start at $30 but depending on seats, go up from there. Tickets are available at,, the Bass Concert Hall ticket office, all Texas Box Office Outlets, or by phone at (512) 477-6060. For groups of 10 or more, call (877) 275-3804 or email [email protected].

Show promoters describe that “School of Rock – The Musical is a hilarious new musical that 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. While teaching these pintsized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.”

If the movie is any indication, this is one not to be missed! We’ll see you there!
