School of Rock the Musical description
What's the class schedule at this very special school? Your first lesson of the day is rock history. Your second lesson is rock appreciation and theory. Your third lesson is band practice. And it's all thanks to the failed rock star Dewey Finn who, having been thrown out of his own rock band, takes a post as a substitute teacher at a particularly prestigious private school to earn extra cash.
The thing is, Dewey is about as academically gifted as a paper bag, and he has absolutely no interest in the official curriculum. He's rock-obsessed, and decides to create his very own curriculum, transforming his classes into guitar-destroying, bass-battering, brain-blasting lessons about everything to do with - you guessed it – rock music.
Our very own Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber leads the way, producing this fresh new stage musical to perfection. He has composed fourteen exceptional new show tunes for the score, which also includes plenty of brilliant songs you'll recognise from the film. But there's more. The respected author Julian Fellowes, of Downton Abbey fame, joins Lloyd Webber to bring this fabulous new show roaring onto the stage.
The Broadway production took off with a bang thanks to innovative use of new media, with an amazing 360 degree video of the musical on the show website. This, as well as a story that kids of all ages love, from teens to oldies, helped create an impressive impact over the Atlantic.
If your children are wannabee rock stars: guitarists, bass players, singers or drummers, they'll be totally inspired by the amazingly talented youngsters who form the musical's sensational live kids’ rock band. They'll go home absolutely buzzing with excitement, making this much more than a run-of-the-mill musical.
The 2003 film gathered a host of rave reviews. It eventually grossed a whopping 131 million US dollars worldwide and, until it was overtaken by Pitch Perfect in 2015, was the highest grossing musical comedy of all time. The story is a heart-warming testimony to the transformative power of music. Despite all sorts of troubles and madcap adventures, thanks to Dewey Finn no one can stop the School of Rock!
