Video: School Of Rock Journey to the stage

Published 16 September 2016

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End production of School Of Rock – The Musical will begin previews at the New London Theatre on 24 October with opening night on 14 November.  In the lead up to the UK premiere the show will produce a 7 part webisode series following the cast’s journey to the stage.

In episode 1, join Jo Whiley as she hosts the West End launch for School Of Rock – The Musical. This episode sees the cast begin their journey, performing in the spotlight in front of a live audience for the very first time. See the kids rock out at a jamming session with their future substitute teacher Mr Dewey Finn, played by comedy star David Fynn.

Joining David in the ‘grown-up cast’ is Florence Andrews as Rosalie Mullins, Oliver Jackson as Ned Schneebly and Preeya Kalidas as Patty Di Marco.

Based on the iconic hit movie and with a rocking new score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, School Of Rock – The Musical follows slacker and wannabe rock star Dewey Finn as he turns a class of straight-A students into an ear popping, riff scorching, all conquering rock band!  Dewey poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school to make ends meet, and when he discovers his fifth graders’ musical talents, he enlists his class to form a rock group and conquer the Battle of the Bands. As Dewey falls for the beautiful headmistress, can he and his students keep this special assignment secret as they learn to fully embrace the power of rock?
