“School of Rock the Musical” to Star Local Student Actors and Musicians‏
 Huntington, WV - Local students will rock out on stage, playing live music as part of the local premiere of “School of Rock the Musical: Youth Production,” which is based on the hit Broadway musical.      The musical is based on the Paramount movie starring Jack Black and created by Mike White. It tells the story of a would-be rock star who finds himself working as a substitute teacher at an upper crust private school - and he decides to build a rock band using the talented students in his classroom!
     The show will be performed at Huntington High School at 1 Highlander Way in Huntington on Nov. 10, 11, 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 12 and 13 at 2:30 p.m.  Tickets are $8 for students (age 12 and under) and senior citizens, and $12 for adults. 
   (There are also a limited number of seats available for a performance for local schools only on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 9:15 a.m. - call 304-416-5437 for more information.)         This will be the first community theatre show from First Stage Theatre to include actors playing musical instruments live on stage during the show!      The book for the show is by Julian Fellowes, with lyrics by Glenn Slater and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The show also includes original songs from the film.      “It’s a fast, funny, high-energy show, and the cast is doing an amazing job bringing it to life,” said director Chuck Minsker. “The show is designed to promote music education in a fun way, and it’s packed with terrific songs - and wait until you hear the band rock the house!”      Tickets may be purchased at the door, and seats may be reserved by leaving a message at 304-416-5437.      Based in Huntington, W.Va., the First Stage Theatre Company is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing an educational, developmental experience for young people through the performing arts.        For more information, go to the First Stage website at www.firststagetheatre.org, call 304-416-KIDS, follow the organization on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/First-Stage-Theatre-Company/151408134941398 and on Twitter at https://twitter.com/FirstStage4.
