School of Rock’s Twelve-Year-Old Prodigy Jammed to Jimi Hendrix’s The Star Spangled Banner

School of Rock’s Twelve-Year-Old Prodigy Jammed to Jimi Hendrix’s The Star Spangled Banner

Forty Seven years ago on August 18, 1969 Jimi Hendrix closed Woodstock with arguably the seminal performance of the festival. And the rest, as we say, is rock n roll history. At today’s matinee of  School of Rock – The Musical’s twelve-year-old guitar prodigy Brandon Niederauer perform his own rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at the curtain call. And again musical history was made

School of Rock – The Musical opened to rave reviews on Sunday, December 6, 2015. Based on the hit film, 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 pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.

School of Rock – The Musical received 6 Tony Award Nominations, including Best Musical, Best Score (Andrew Lloyd Webber, Glenn Slater), Best Book (Julian Fellowes), and Best Leading Actor (Alex Brightman).
