School of Rock the Musical at the Gillian Lynne Theatre
School of Rock the Musical
The film blew your mind. The musical conquered Broadway.
And now London will learn how to rock.
Based on the hit movie, this ass-kicking new musical follows dropout Dewey Finn, a failed rock star forced to earn some extra cash by posing as a teacher at a prestigious prep school. But Dewey isn’t going to teach them algebra or arithmetic, oh no. These kids are going to learn what it takes to become the most awesome rock n’ roll band of all time! But can his new group win the Battle of the Bands without being schooled by their parents and headmistress, or will Dewey have to face the music?
With a new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Julian Fellowes and an incredible cast of kids shredding guitars, pounding drums and rocking out live, School of Rock is a pop-tastic treat for all ages. You are invited to tune your air guitar, raise you rock salute and discover the show that hits all the right notes.
