NEW YORK, N.Y. - Broadway is looking for pint-sized rock stars to join perhaps the coolest school band ever: the one onstage at "School of Rock — The Musical."

Open auditions for singers 9-15 will take place in New York on Jan. 24 at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre, Los Angeles on Jan. 17 at Screenland Studios and Chicago on Jan. 24 at the Actor's Equity Association branch.

The stage version of "The School of Rock" will stay close to the plot of the Jack Black-led 2003 film, in which a wannabe rocker enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and conquer the Battle of the Bands. The film featured songs by The Doors, Cream, The Black Keys and Led Zeppelin.
