Andrew Lloyd Webber’s award-winning smash hit, will go on a major UK Tour in 2021! Based on the hilarious hit movie, this new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band – sensationally performed live by the production’s young actors every night with roof-raising energy!
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
