Based on the hit Jack Black film, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-nominated stage adaptation School Of Rock – The Musical makes its long-awaited transfer to the West End at the New London Theatre.
A guitar-thrashing, drum-rolling, rip-roaring celebration of the power of rock, School Of Rock – The Musical tells the story of Dewey Finn, a down-on-his-luck wannabe rock star struggling to make ends meet.
Posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school, Finn discovers his students’ musical talents, and opts to enlist his fifth-graders in a quest to conquer The Battle Of The Bands.
Described by Black as “a Broadway masterpiece”, School Of Rock – The Musical features songs from the acclaimed movie, with new music written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater.
With a book by Julian Fellowes and direction from Laurence Connor, this is a rollicking show guaranteed to have audiences young and old rocking out.
Please note that this show's seating plan is currently provisional; the availability of some seats is unconfirmed.
