School Of Rock
School Of Rock
Based on the Paramount movie by Mike White | Book by Julian Fellowes | Lyrics by Glenn Slater | Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

SCHOOL OF ROCK is a brand new musical based on the famous Paramount film written by Mike White, which starred Jack Black. 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. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. The stage musical on Broadway is produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who has composed 14 new songs to create a score, which also features all of the original songs from the movie. SCHOOL OF ROCK, with its sensational live kids’ rock band, is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music. May the spirit of rock be with you!

Available for youth performers 18 and under only.

Running Time: 2 hours; One intermission (2 Acts)

  • Quotes
“A New York Times Critics’ Pick, SCHOOL OF ROCK is Andrew Lloyd Webber's friskiest show in decades. I melted. Alex Brightman is a super ball of energy. He brings out the best in his young costars in a performance as notable for its generosity as its virtuosity.” — Ben Brantley, The New York Times, December 06, 2015
“4 STARS! Wow, does SCHOOL OF ROCK work on Broadway! IT’S A DOUBLE JOLT OF ADRENALINE.

SCHOOL’S IN — FOREVER!” — David Cote, Time Out New York, December 06, 2015
