Based on the cult 2003 film of the same name and with a rocking new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, a book by Julian Fellowes and direction by Laurence Connor, School of Rock follows slacker Dewey Finn as he turns a class of straight -A students into an ear-popping, riff-scorching, all-conquering rock band! While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie, this high-octane smash delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses!
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new hit musical is available now for licensing!
It is nearly 50 years since my first musical JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT was premiered at a London school. A year later it received its USA debut at a college in Douglaston, Queens, New York.
I can think of no better introduction to SCHOOL OF ROCK than to repeat what I wrote about JOSEPH so many years ago.
SCHOOL OF ROCK is for everyone to take part in. It is a celebration of the empowering force of music.
All of us in the creative team have had a fantastic time bringing the movie to the Broadway stage and we all hope that you have as much fun when you perform the show as we had when we put it together.
Good luck and may the spirit of rock be with you. Andrew Lloyd Webber
