first_img The film was penned by Mike White, directed by Richard Linklater and starred Jack Black as wannabe rock star Dewey Finn, who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. When he discovers his students’ musical talents, he enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and conquer the Battle of the Bands. “It’s a wonderful movie about what the power of music can be for kids,” Lloyd Webber told in an exclusive interview (see below) about why he was attracted to the story. The theater legend went on to emphasize “that it’s Jack Black’s movie and it’s Mike White’s movie and Mike’s a terrific writer and I do not want in any way to make it a kind of Andrew Lloyd Webber show—it has to be true to the original for it to work.” View Comments School of Rock – The Musical Three-time Grammy-winning record producer Rob Cavallo has also joined the creative team.

first_imgSince being activated from the IL in late July after his rib injury, Correa has batted .241 with eight home runs and 21 RBIs. He’s slashing .279/.359/.588 this season with 19 homers and 56 RBIs in 71 games for the AL West-leading Astros (80-46).He hasn’t played more than 110 games in the regular season since 2016 — his second season in the majors.Jack Mayfield shifted to shortstop Monday after Correa’s exit, but it’s unlikely he’ll take over the position if Correa misses extended time as Alex Bregman shifted over from third base for the majority of Correa’s previous IL stint.

The 24-year-old missed a month of last season with back issues before adopting a new postgame routine (which includes a foam roller and hot/cold-water tub dunks) to help loosen his back. Carlos Correa’s disappointing 2019 season took another unfortunate turn Monday when he was pulled from a game against the Tigers with discomfort in his back.After striking out in the first inning, Correa was taken out of the game and sent home to rest.

WHITTIER – Police have arrested two 14-year-old boys on suspicion of vandalism, one of whom officials say they linked to 70 different tagging incidents in the city. Officers caught the boys spray-painting a wall Thursday in the 13500 block of Franklin Street, Whittier Police Department spokeswoman Officer Diana Salazar said Friday. “A caller phoned the station Thursday morning to say she heard spray painting outside the residence,” she said. Officers responded quickly enough to observe two juveniles spray-painting the wall, she added. As the officers attempted to detain the boys, one of them attempted to escape, but was quickly caught, she said. Both were arrested on suspicion of vandalism. They later were released to their parents. One of the boys is a Whittier resident, the other lives in Norwalk, Salazar said. Officers took photographs of the grafitti and entered the images into the department’s Graffiti Tracker data base, which can identify graffiti by design and location. By using the system, police were able to link one of the boys to 70 other tagging incidents, Salazar said.last_img read more
