Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit, award-winning West End show, School of Rock – The Musical, comes to Mayflower Theatre from Monday 18 to Saturday 23 July.
Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, and all the original songs from the movie, this high-octane smash delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses.
Based on the hilarious hit movie, this new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school.
There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band – sensationally performed live by the production’s young actors every night with roof-raising energy!
While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
School of Rock – The Musical features new music written by Andrew Lloyd Webber – composer of some of the world’s best known musicals, including Cats, Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Phantom of the Opera – with lyrics by Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Sister Act) and a book by Julian Fellowes.
It is directed by Laurence Connor (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, London Palladium 2019) with choreography by JoAnn M.Hunter, set and costume designs by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Mick-Potter, music supervision by John Rigby with Matt Smith as musical director.
Tickets for School of Rock – The Musical (Monday 18 to Saturday 23 July) are on sale at mayflower.org.uk or 02380 711811.
