School of Rock 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 your rock salute and discover the show that hits all the right notes.

And don’t miss your chance to see the West End production of this smash-hit musical for yourself!
