A Day In The Life: The School Of Rock class

By Nerys Obeng & Jack Goodacre First Published 13 February 2018, Last Updated 27 March 2020

Based on the iconic 2003 film of the same title, School Of Rock – The Musical sees a class of straight-A 10-year-old students transform into an ear-popping, all-conquering rock band.

Though the West End production is now closed, it’ll always be one of our favourites so we’re taking a look back at the jaw-droppingly talented kids cast who won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music in 2017.

If you’ve ever wondered what the pint-sized stars get up to before they get on the stage, you’re gonna love this backstage diary recorded for us by Nerys Obeng (who played Tomika) and Jack Goodacre (who played Zack). See what they get up to below!
