Last night, the Phantom of the Opera celebrated their 30th anniversary as the longest-running production in Broadway history. At the end of the night, composer/director Andrew Lloyd Webber stepped out for a special curtain call. At the 3:50 mark of the live feed, Webber introduces the School of Rock: The Musical cast to perform the theme song of Phantom of the Opera. In uniform, Brandon “Taz” Niederauer–who played the role of “Zack Mooneyham” for the first two years of production–steps out for a roaring guitar solo before being joined by the rest of the original cast. The energy can be felt across the screens, as these kids–all under the age of 15–shred the Broadway stage once again.
Skip to the 3:50 mark for the insane performance:
