Do you know a junior chart-topper of the future? Then School Of Rock – The Musical could be their first step on the road to rockstar glory this May.

Continuing their countrywide talent search for kids ready to ‘join the band’, open kids auditions will take place in London on Wednesday 9 and 16 May for musicians, and Monday 21 and Wednesday 23 May for ensemble members.

Auditioning kids must be between 8-12 years old, and either play a rock instrument (guitar, bass, piano, and/or drums), or sing. Registration and further details can be found by contacting Jessica Ronane Casting via the School Of Rock auditions page.

So if you’re a pint-sized musical prodigy looking to make an entrance onto the West End scene, 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 hilarious 2003 film of the same title, School Of Rock – The Musical sees the kids at a prestigious prep school form a rip-roaring rock band under the leadership of wannabe rocker Dewey Finn. With lessons in the power of rock from Dewey, they eventually rise up to compete in the legendary Battle of the Bands.

The show features music from the movie, as well as new music written by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes.

School Of Rock – The Musical is currently booking at the recently renamed Gillian Lynne Theatre until 13 January 2019.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. 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.

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. 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.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

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.
