School of Rock — The Musical, which opened Dec. 6, 2015, at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway, is holding an open casting call Feb. 26 for replacements, described as "a new wave of pint-size rockers," offering a "once-in-a-lifetime chance to join the most famous kid band of all time."
The massive open casting call takes place at the Winter Garden (1634 Broadway). The open call begins at 10 AM ET, with sign-in beginning at 9 AM and ending at noon.

This audition is exclusively for girls who play bass and boys who play guitar, piano and drums. Kids should come prepared with a headshot and resume (if you have one) and ready to rock out. Drums, keyboard and amps will be provided.
Based on the hit 2003 film of the same title, School of Rock features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes with direction by Laurence Connor. The new musical also has choreography by JoAnn M.
