Video: School Of Rock Journey to the stage

First Published 16 September 2016, Last Updated 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?

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 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.

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.
