Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme…You better get me to school on time! Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock – The Musical is a two-hour, two-act show (plus intermission), based on the hit movie. The tuner follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress finding out?

Auditions will be 2/3 from 5:30pm-9:30pm & 2/4 from 9am-1pm. Callbacks will be 2/5 from 1pm-4pm.

Sign up for a time to audition at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040f45a8a72fa7f58-pied1#/. Prepare 30 seconds of a song that you are comfortable singing and that will demonstrate your range.

The ARTfactory’s production of “Bottom’s Dream" will be presented on the Hylton Performing Arts Center at Home series on Thursday, October 8 at 7pm (Follow the link: tinyurl.com/bottomsdream).

With actors from Rooftop Productions and Pied Piper Theatre, “Bottom’s Dream” is a marvelous adaptation of two subplots of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” As the actors prepare a play for the wedding of Theseus and Queen Hyppolyta, they find an adventure in the magical woods which are inhabited by fairies and a sprite named Puck. Directed by David Johnson and adapted by Kelly Glyptis from an original concept by Ken Elston, we welcome you to join us for a delightful evening of fun, filmed in the woods behind the City Of Manassas Museum!

I'm still playing catch up for the Class of 2020! This sweet girl spent so much of her life at the Pied Piper Theatre we just had to do something there even if it was only outside and I love it so much! We also headed over to Colgan High School and found this beautiful field of flowers! We had so much fun finding all sorts of little surprises! Rach, we are so proud of you! Kelly and Jared I know how proud you are! Well done and THANK YOU for choosing me to capture her senior year!
Thank you to all the 2020 graduates who've been a part of the Hylton Center family over the years. Today, we celebrate you!
