Running Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

  • Andrew Lloyd Webber, the man who brought rock and romance to Broadway, is back with a heart-stirring hit. SCHOOL OF ROCK is a New York Times Critics’ Pick and “AN INSPIRING JOLT OF ENERGY, JOY AND MAD SKILLZ!” (Entertainment Weekly ). Reuters raves ”ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER HAS BROADWAY ROCKING AGAIN!”

    Based on the hit film, this hilarious 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. 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. (The New York Times says, “BE WARNED! There’s a love story in this one.”)

    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! The Daily News cheers, ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER “AWAKENS THE EMPOWERING MESSAGE OF ROCK!” and Time Out New York raves, “SCHOOL’s in – FOREVER!”

What people are saying about School of Rock - The Musical

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must See Feel Good family entertainment I went with hubby and two friends, rather reluctantly as I'd been told I would not like it. They were wrong. We all loved it. The kids are great, the lead amazing, it was full of energy and talent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Feel Good Musical Ever. I went to this musical with my husband, daughter and granddaughter. I had very high expectations and it exceeded them, I can't fault this show in any way. And how refreshing to see a show that is perfect for all the family without being 'twee'; nothing offensive, great fun, huge talents, dynamic energy. if you have to choose just one musical to go to, choose this one. Perfection.

Have two children who are grade 8 drummers because of the films influence.. Production was much better than the film!!!!! Highly recommended .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best music theatre experience ever Took my daughter as a birthday treat and we are both fans of the original movie. The production doesn't use all the movie's songs and adds a number of new ones, this doesn't detract from the experience but actually enhances it. All actors are fantastic, especially the kids who play their own instruments. The bass player was actually smaller than her instrument but played it well. The show wasn't too 'luvvy' and had a true rock n roll spirit not taking itself too seriously but doing a very proffesional job. We have all seen many productions over the years but all said it was the best show we had ever seen. UNMISSABLE! !
