Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash-hit, Olivier Award-winning School of Rock the Musical crashed into the New London Theatre for its UK premiere in 2016, and continues to play to packed out audiences. Originally premiering on Broadway, the show has earned rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.

Based on the 2003 film of the same name, starring comic icon Jack Black, School of Rock follows wannabe rock star Dewey Finn who poses as a substitute teacher for money. Once he hears that the children of Horace Green are superb musicians, he decides to form his own band – the School of Rock. Featuring an original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Glenn Slater, the musical includes catchy songs such as “You’re in the Band”, “Where Did the Rock Go” and “School of Rock (Teacher’s Pet)”.

Stephen Leask (One Man, Two Guvnors) stars as wannabe rock god Dewey Finn, alongside Florence Andrews as Rosalie Mullins, Alan Pearson as Ned Schneebly and Michelle Francis as Patty di Marco, alongside Craig Gallivan as alternate Dewey. Further adult ensemble includes Nick Butcher, Cassandra McCowan, Jessica Louise Parkinson, Andy Rees, Cameron Sharp, Jake Sharp, James Smoker, Wendy Somerville, Andrew Spillett, Hannah Stratton and Alex Tomkins.

Additional casting includes Paul Kemble, Laura Medforth, Billy Mitchell, Tasha Sheridan and Joshua St. Clair. School of Rock the Musical features three alternating child casts, all of whom are talented actor-musicians who play the music live on stage.

Directed by Laurence Connor, the musical features a book by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), with choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter, design by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Natasha Katz and sound design by Mick Potter. Winning the 2017 WhatsOnStage Award for Best New Musical and the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music, School of Rock the Musical is the West End's most rockin' shows, playing at the New London Theatre!
