School Of Rock kids’ auditions are coming to London

“Rock got reason, rock got no rhyme” – but if you’re a talented young musician or singer, it might well be your time. Open auditions to join the kids band of School Of Rock – The Musical are coming to London!

Chart-toppers of the future aged 8-12 years old, who can play a rock instrument and/or sing, can audition in London on 17 or 18 October for musicians (guitar, bass, piano, and/or drums), and 13 or 15 November for ensemble roles.

Registration and further details can be found by contacting Jessica Ronane Casting via the School Of Rock auditions page.

The countrywide search for the latest crop of budding musical talent has most recently visited Plymouth and Manchester, and now comes to London. The show’s original kids cast were the recipients of the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music in 2017.

So if you’re a pint-sized musical prodigy looking for the opportunity to slam some tunes in the West End, this could be the opportunity for you. Check out what a day in the life of a School Of Rock band member is like.

Based on the hit film, School Of Rock – 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. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.

The show is currently booking until 20 October 2019 at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.

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.

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.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
