Since making the transition from screen to stage, School of Rock has received top marks and rave reviews for its performances on Broadway and London’s West End.

It’s easy to see why. Featuring a hilarious feel good story amplified by some great rock tunes, School Of Rock is an infectiously fun lesson about anarchy and rebellion that will make you want to re-live your youth all over again. If only school was really like this!

Like the film, School of Rock the musical follows the misadventures of super slob and failed rock star Dewey Finn who faced with spiralling debt lands a job as a teacher in a posh school. The problem is that Dewey is not a qualified teacher!

When Dewey finds outs that his prim and proper straight-A students are forced to study classical music he decides to wrip up the syllabus by giving them a lesson in rock and forming a band worthy of top prize in an upcoming Battle of the Bands competition.

But can he get his pupils to the gig without their pushy parents and strict headmistress Miss Mullins finding out and exposing his identity?

While the undisputable star of the film version of School of Rock was Jack Black, the musical production provides a stage for the next generation of musical actors to shine, with the children dazzling with their vocals, instrumental talent and sensational live performances which helped earn the musical the 2017 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music, as well as the WhatsOnStage Award for Best New Musical.

Great fun for all ages, School of Rock may provide a change of direction for musical maestro Andrew Lloyd Webber but it certainly hits all the right notes.

A loving testimony to the power of music and inspirational teachers, School of Rock the musical is one of the hottest productions of the year. Grab your air guitar and secure your tickets today with National Holidays.
