School of Rock - The Musical

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s critically acclaimed Broadway smash-hit School of Rock The Musical is now thrilling London audiences at the New London Theatre. 

Based on the 2003 film School of Rock starring Jack Black, School of Rock The Musical tells the story of Dewey Finn, a down-and-out would-be rock star. Posing as a substitute teacher at an elite prep school in an effort to earn some cash, Dewey soon realises that his students have some incredible musical talents. Uniting his fifth graders in one awesome rock group, he sets his sights on the Battle of the Bands.

Recently nominated for a Tony Award for Best New musical, School of Rock The Musical’s sensational score full of pumping rock sounds has been singled out for particular praise. With its original score, including the songs ‘You’re in the Band’, ‘In the End of Time’ and ‘Teacher’s Pet’, its uplifting story and its robust sense of fun, this energetic new musical promises to be another West End triumph for music theatre legend Webber.

Playing at the New London Theatre, the home of Webber’s original production of Cats, book your tickets today to this buzzing new musical.

  • Fantastic show, average theatre

    22 May 2017

    Saw the Sunday matinee yesterday and have to say what a great show. Despite the audience being a pretty lacklustre bunch (often the case with Sunday shows), the performances from the cast were nothing short of brilliant. The adult cast were outstanding, but it was the kids that were a revelation. Their acting and singing was wonderful and their playing of the instruments was astonishing. The show was up to the standard of similar shows in the West End like Matilda and Charlie and the chocolate factory. Less flamboyance and technical wizardry, but I don't think it's any less of a musical for that. The music was great and the songs were funny and clever, including a couple from the film. The only slight letdown was the theatre. It may have been refurbished and renamed, but it still showed its 1970's "style" with tired design and queues for the small loos. The auditorium really benefitted from its nicely raked seeking, but if you were close to the stage and not sitting in the middle (both the stage and seating were curved) like we were, we often could not see the heart of the action as there were the kids school desks on the front of the stage, obstructing the view. Saying all that, my sons birthday group left very happy, excited and singing along to the shows memorable songs. So a really big success and a show that I'd thoroughly recommend. It deserves a long run in the West End, so grab a ticket if you can. Just don't be tempted by a seat near the front if you can't get one that's fairly central.

    "When Lloyd Webber and Julian Fellowes let down their hair, the results are hardly anti-establishment. But the kids are genuinely talented and this is good-natured entertainment"
