YOU ARE IN A BAND
School of Rock – The Musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit, the Olivier Award-winning West End show is coming to The Alhambra from Monday 25 October to Saturday 30 October on its first ever UK and Ireland tour.
Based on the hilarious hit movie, School of Rock – The 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.
One of three incredibly talented teams of twelve children will perform live alongside Dewey each night and are currently getting ready to stick it to the man when the bell rings for the new school term in September. The children range in age from 9 to 13 years old and from across the country, including Birmingham, Buckinghamshire, Cheshire, Essex, London, North Wales, South Wales, Surrey, West Midlands.
School of Rock – The Musical features new music written by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Sister Act) and a book by Julian Fellowes. School of Rock- The Musical debuted at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre in New York in 2015, and ran for more than three years, picking up four Tony nominations along the way. It transferred to London in late 2016 and ran for over three years at the New London Theatre, winning an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
