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…!

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!
