'School of Rock - The Musical' opens at Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre

CHICAGO (WLS) -- "School of Rock - The Musical" will play Broadway in Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre for a limited three-week engagement starting Wednesday until Nov. 19.

Actor Rob Colletti, who plays the lead as failed, wannabe rock star Dewey Finn, visited the ABC7 studio on Wednesday to talk about the show.

Based on the hit film, the musical follows Finn as he 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, Finn falls for the school's beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
