What is School of Rock about?
School of Rock the Musical features music by the incomparable Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes. Based on the hit 2003 film, this irresistible new rock musical follows Dewey Finn a wannabe rock star and guitarist who is down on his luck. After being kicked out of his band, and nearly out of his flat Dewey decides to make a bit of quick money by posing as a supply teacher at a prestigious prep school.
When Dewey discovers that his straight-laced straight-A students might have rock and roll in their souls he forms a band, and a plan to win an upcoming Battle of the Bands competition. Now he just needs to figure out how to get his students to the gig without their parents, or the headmistress finding out and putting an end to their hopes of winning it all.
School of Rock tickets have remained some of the most sought after in the West End since the show opened here to rave reviews in 2016. This show has heart, talent and plenty of rock. School of Rock at the Gillian Lynne Theatre is the perfect show for everyone in the family!

Review: School of Rock at the New London Theatre "the perfect family show"
Almost a year after its West End debut at the New London Theatre, the Horace Green students are still rocking out with enough force, energy and talent to blow the theatre roof off. The combination of the story, based on the hit film, and the original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber creates the foundation of a stellar show, but there is one standout factor that raises School of Rock to the top, and that is the kids.
