New kids cast announced for the West End’s School Of Rock

West End, let’s get ready to rock: a new year group have been announced to play the kids’ cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School Of Rock The Musical!

Class will be in session from 23 February (lucky for them, just after February half-term!) for the new school group, who’ll be making up Dewey’s band and playing live at every performance at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.

They’ll also see School Of Rock The Musical through its celebratory 1000th West End performance, which will take place on 6 March. And to think that, at their age, we were finding Grade II piano difficult…!

The three teams of twelve kids will star Sebastian Adams-Eaton (eleven years old from Suffolk), Jasper Bew (eleven years old from London), and Amos Mayland (eleven years old from Cornwall) who will play Zack; Nayan Gupta (eleven years old from Sheffield), William Harvey (eleven years old from Stockport) and Jack Manders (nine years old from Buckinghamshire), who will play Freddy; Daniel Chang (eleven years old from London), Noah Gupta-Wright (thirteen years old from London) and Caspar Lloyd (eleven years old from Colchester) who will play Lawrence; Millie-Jayne Evans (nine years old from Plymouth), Evie Lawley (ten years old from London) and Sofia Wilkinson Hill (eight years old from Merseyside) who will play Katie; Tommy Featherstone (ten years old from London), Jakub Kopec (eleven) years old from Surrey) and Will Tarpey (twelve years old from East Sussex) who will play Billy; and Delilah Bennett-Cardy (ten years old from Hertfordshire), Amelie Green (eleven years old from London) and Nancy Hartley-Blake (eleven years old from Teesside) will play Summer.

The teams will also comprise Kaylah Black (twelve years old from London), Tallulah Byrne (twelve years old from Chelmsford) and Sara Sheen (thirteen years old from Manchester) who will play Tomika; Ikechukwudi Machie (ten years old from London), Teni Taiwo (twelve years old from Hertfordshire) and Stanley Voss (twelve years old from Buckinghamshire) who will play James; Calypso Bailey (twelve years old from Essex), Savannah Pages (eleven years old from Surrey) and Shani Roberts (ten years old from Essex) who will play Marcy; Maxwell Apple (ten years old from London), Todd Dachtler (eleven years old from London) and Vaughn Arthur Endraca (twelve years old from London) who will play Mason; Tia Belle Keilty (ten years old from Hertfordshire), Lily Jean Jackson (eleven years old from Essex) and Naniyah Owusu (nine years old from Essex) who will play Shonelle; and Charlotte Breen(ten years old from Bromley), Chloe Marler (nine years old from Essex) and Ellie Pavitt (eleven years old from Essex) who will play Sophie.

School Of Rock The Musical is now in its third West End year at the Gillian Lynne Theatre. Last October, the rip-roaring musical opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne, from where it will go on to play stints in Brisbane, Sydney, Shanghai and Seoul.

Based on the brilliant film with Jack Black, the musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There, he teaches a class of straight-A students the only way he knows how: how to be a guitar-shredding, mind-blowing rock band!

It’s currently booking until January 2020 – so there’s plenty of opportunities to catch the next waves of rock gods of the future!

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

Monday 6 April: The following statement has been issued by the Society of London Theatre (SOLT) on behalf of the major commercial West End theatre operators and the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR), to provide clear information for customers with regards to their theatre bookings and help ease the unprecedented strain on box offices and ticket agents in light of the Covid 19 pandemic.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen. We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

Theatre box office and ticket agents teams are continuing to work through the very high number of ticket orders affected by the cancellations. An average of 300,000 people a week attend West End theatres, so this a huge task. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that all our teams are now working remotely in response to government restrictions, many with reduced numbers of staff due to the virus, and this will be adding to the time it will take us to process your order.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
