A 10 Year Old From MN Headed Out On ‘Rock’ Tour!
Jack Black brought the 'Rock' to the big screen, now a 10 year old from Minnesota is helping to bring the 'Rock' to the stage on a national tour. Sadly as Minnesotans we won't be able to see him perform, but young Minneapolis actor Huxley Westemeier is currently rehearsing to join the "School of Rock" national tour.
The play which is based on the Jack Black film about an air-guitaring substitute teacher and his students-who-jam, "School of Rock" opens March 6 at Orpheum Theatre. Westemeier recently was in "Watch on the Rhine" at Guthrie Theater. Some of Westemeier's other local credits include "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" at Children's Theatre Company (he was the title character's younger brother) and "Jesus Christ Superstar" at the Ordway. Huxley will join the tour the following week, in Louisville, playing style-conscious Billy.
The young actor has played the piano for five years and is currently composing his own musical, "Lost in Thyme."
