SEEKING:
The Students (Ages 8-16)
● Summer (Mezzo Soprano): Summer is a high-achieving girl who hates nonsense. Initially, she absolutely despises Dewey, but she comes to love the band—or, perhaps, the power that comes with it—and she is willing to do anything to see it succeed. Summer is one of the brightest students at Horace Green. Throughout the show, she is convinced that winning the “Battle of the Bands” will look good on her college application.
● Zack (Plays Guitar, Tenor): Zack is the band’s lead guitarist and also a talented songwriter. He desperately wants to impress his father, who’s usually too busy with work to take an interest in his family.
● Lawrence (Plays Keyboards): Lawrence is an unconfident boy, and is also gluten intolerant. He initially believes that he isn’t cool enough to be a part of the band.
● Freddy (Plays Drums, Tenor): Freddy is a rambunctious boy, as shown when he repeatedly slams cymbals together disruptively during music class.
● Katie (Plays Bass): Katie is a quiet, serious girl who keeps mostly to herself. She plays the cello at school, but is quick to pick up the bass at Dewey’s encouragement.
● Tomika (Vocals, Mezzo Soprano): Tomika transfers to Horace Green after being accepted off of the waiting list. She is shy and doesn’t speak to anyone at school, and feels as though she’s not as intelligent as the other students.
● Shonelle and Marcy (Backup Vocals): Shonelle and Marcy are quieter girls who tend to blend into the background. They are School of Rock’s backup singers, and also talented dancers.
● Billy (Tenor): Billy is a flamboyant and artistic kid with a love of style and fashion magazines.
