Tonganoxie High performs ‘School of Rock’
November 15, 2018
Anyone wanting to get nostalgic about high school or college in the 1980s or early 1990s got their fill of rock songs — and even some love ballads — last week at the Tonganoxie Performing Arts Center on the Tonganoxie High School campus. THS students performed Samuel French’s “Rock of Ages” (High School Edition) Thursday through Saturday at the Tonganoxie Performing Arts Center on the Tonganoxie High School east campus. The musical is based on the Broadway version that also became a 2012 motion picture featuring an all-star cast of Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti and more. The show takes place on Southern California’s famed Sunset Strip during the Reagan Era, home to Dupree’s Bourbon Room and The Venus a Go-Go.
