About School of Rock

Having opened to great acclaim on Broadway in December 2015, School of Rock has landed at the Gillian Lynne Theatre! Featuring a new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater, this show invites you to bring your air guitar and unleash your inner rock god! With a book by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), the irresistibly funny School of Rock has moments of genuine sincerity, packing an emotional punch alongside enough rollicking guitar riffs to melt your face off! This is combined with the talent of 13 children who form the West End’s first kids rock band, all playing their instruments live on stage – they really can rock! Winning the 2017 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music, London is rocking out to School of Rock!

What's the story?

Based on the hugely successful 2003 movie, School of Rock tells the story of Dewey Finn, a down-on-his-luck, wannabe rock star. In a moment of madness, Dewey poses as a substitute teacher at Horace Green, a prestigious New York prep school, in order to earn a few extra bucks. With no interest in arithmetic, academia or A-grades, Dewey struggles to fit in at Horace Green – until he discovers his pupils’ musical talents. Creating his own curriculum, Dewey focuses on guitar-shredding, bass-slapping and mic-dropping, and transforms these pint-sized prodigies into a mind-blowing rock band. To fulfil his life-long dream, he enlists the electric ensemble in the Battle of the Bands – but can he get them to win the competition without their disapproving parents and uptight Principal finding out?
