    Following its opening night at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre, School of Rock – The Musical will transfer to the London stage with dates and production details to be confirmed in the new year.

    Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “I am thrilled to announce that we are confirming a West End production of School of Rock – The Musical. We have had such a great time in the US staging the world premiere and now that we have opened on Broadway, I am delighted to be focussing on the next chapter in the show’s journey.”

    Based on the smash hit 2003 film of the same title starring Jack Black, School of Rock features music by Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes.

    In School of Rock, down-on-his-luck wannabe rock star Dewey Finn poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school to make ends meet. When he discovers his students’ musical talents, he enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and conquer the Battle of the Bands.

    This New York Times critics’ pick is “an inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz,” raves Entertainment Weekly. NY1 says, “It's a thrilling rock-solid hit! Andrew Lloyd Webber's music is his best in years!” Variety calls it “exuberant with a sensational cast!” It's “heartwarming and irresistible!” says the Associated Press and Time Out New York cheers, “WOW, does School of Rock work on Broadway! School's in…forever!”

    School of Rock – The Musical is directed by Laurence Connor with choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter, set and costume designs by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Mick Potter, music supervision by Ethan Popp and hair design by Josh Marquette.

    School of Rock – The Musical is produced on Broadway by Andrew Lloyd Webber for The Really Useful Group, Warner Music Group & Access Industries, The Shubert Organization and The Nederlander Organization. Nina Lannan and Madeleine Lloyd Webber serve as Executive Producers.
