BREAKING NEWS: It’s the beginning of a new school year (meaning new teachers). It has just been announced that the Broadway company of the smash hit School of Rock the Musical will welcome 2 new leading men set to alternate the lead role of the failed musician turned substitute teacher “Dewey Finn” at the Winter Garden Theatre.

Beginning September 25th, 2017, Canadian actor Justin Collette will graduate from serving as the alternate (within the past year) to taking on the role fulltime 5 evening performances a week.

In addition, Conner John Gillooly (who currently appears in the Ensemble) will move up tp serving as the new “Dewey Finn” alternate playing all the 3 matinee shows.

For both Collette and Gillooly (who credit SCHOOL OF ROCK as their Broadway Debuts), they replace the show’s current leading man Eric Thomas Petersen (who departs to gear up for the upcoming Broadway-Bound Escape to Margaritaville: The Musical).

Peterson will rock out and teach us how to STICK IT TO THE MAN for the last time on September 24th, 2017.

Who is excited for the new cast changes?!!
