  • Based on the hit Jack Black film, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Olivier Award-winning stage adaptation School Of Rock - The Musical is leaving audiences rocking night (with three children's bands live every night) after night at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.

    This guitar-thrashing, drum-rolling, rip-roaring celebration of the power of rock, 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", and the recipient of three Olivier Award nominations including Mastercard Best New Musical (winning Outstanding Achievement in Music), 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 (Downton Abbey, Half a Sixpence) and direction from Laurence Connor (Les Mis‚rables, Miss Saigon), this is a rollicking show guaranteed to have audiences young and old embracing the ear popping, riff scorching and all conquering music of rebellion.
