School of Rock – Character descriptions below
May 18 9:00am-4:00pm

Dewey Finn

A wannabe rock star with big dreams, Dewey finds himself in urgent need of some cash after getting kicked out of his band. He impersonates a teacher to land a job at the prestigious Horace Green prep school, where he turns his class of straight-A students into a rock group and enters them in the Battle of the Bands.

Rosalie Mullins

Proper and a bit uptight, Rosalie is the headmistress of Horace Green School. She has a secret love of rock music, and yearns to recapture the carefree spirit of her youth.

Ned Schneebly

Ned is an old friend of Dewey’s, and the two currently share a flat with Ned’s girlfriend Patti. He used to play in Dewey’s band, but is now a substitute teacher – who Dewey impersonates to get the job at Horace Green. Ned is still passionate about his music, but tends to let his bossy girlfriend Patti tell him what to do.

Patti Di Marco

Ned’s domineering girlfriend, who lives with Ned and Dewey. She calls the shots in their relationship, and isn’t too happy about Dewey’s presence in their flat – or his influence on Ned.

Summer

Confident and outspoken, Summer is the ideal manager for the band. Ambitious and very clever, she hopes that winning Battle of the Bands will look good on her college application.

Zack

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.

Tomika

New girl Tomika is struggling to fit in at Horace Green. She conquers her shyness to reveal her phenomenal singing ability, and becomes a lead vocalist alongside Dewey in the band.

Lawrence

Awkward and lacking in confidence, Lawrence is hesitant to attempt something “cool”, like joining a band, but he soon turns out to be a fantastic keyboardist.

Katie

Quiet and serious, Katie already played the cello, but switched to bass at Dewey’s suggestion to fill out the band.

Freddie

Freddie loves a bit of rowdiness and noise, making him a great drummer. His own father doesn’t see his ability, constantly belittling his son.

Marcy and Shonelle

Quiet girls with angelic voices, Marcy and Shonelle are the band’s backup singers and dancers.

Mason

Mason is a total whiz with technology, and creates special effects and fantastic lighting designs for the band’s performances using his laptop

Billy

Flamboyant and artistic, Billy has a passionate interest in fashion, even though his father wants him to be a footballer like the other men in his family. He designs the band’s costumes.

James

James is tough and reliable, making him a good security guard for the band. Mostly, he keeps an out for anyone coming while the band are secretly rehearsing!

Sophie

Sophie is technically the band’s roadie, but also serves as a backup dancer during performances
