School of Rock, Richard Linklater's smash hit 2003 comedy musical film about the love and lunacy of rock ‘n' roll, has been brought to the stage by the legendary musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. Pick up School of Rock tickets here at TickX.
Wannabe rock star Dewey Finn - played by Jack Black in the original film - finds himself down on his luck and decides to pose as a substitute teacher at the prestigious prep school Horace Green in order to make ends meet.
When Dewey discovers his students' musical talents, he enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and take on the local battle of the bands. A story as inspirational as it is funny, this show is the perfect night out for families who love music, making School of Rock tickets an absolute must-buy.
With lyrics by Glenn Slater and book by Julian Fellowes, Webber's songs bring all the rock and romance of the original film. The show debuted on Broadway in 2015 and soon made its way over to the West End's Gillian Lynne Theatre where it has been thrilling audiences since 2016.
You'll be amazed at how School of Rock's child performers develop from sceptical school kids into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mindblowing rock band. Truly, these child stars steal the show, with many of them learning to play their character’s instruments within mere weeks – even though their instruments are sometimes taller than them!
School of Rock's lead adult actors do a fantastic job at portraying star-crossed teachers, each wanting to take the kids in a different direction. Ultimately, though, rock wins out, as Dewey awakens the genre's empowering message.
Full of love, laughs and brain-melting guitar licks, School of Rock is one of the most raucous stage musicals of recent years. Make sure you don’t miss out on this award-winning musical. Find all dates and tickets for School of Rock below.
