Hosted by Ken Bruce with the charity’s mascot Pudsey, and alongside the thirteen kids who make up Dewey’s band, Gary Trainor led the adult cast as wannabe rock star Dewey Finn, with Florence Andrews as Rosalie Mullins, Oliver Jackson as Ned Schneebly and Preeya Kalidas as Patty Di Marco.

Now booking to 13 January 2019, School of Rock The Musical London opened in November last year and is the recipient of the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music. In August this year the production welcomed a new group of kids who play live music on stage at each performance and a new adult cast will begin performances later this month.

Based on the smash hit 2003 film of the same title, School of Rock 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 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 John Rigby with Matt Smith as musical director.

School of Rock — The Musical is produced in the West End by Andrew Lloyd Webber for The Really Useful Group and Warner Music Group & Access Industries with Madeleine Lloyd Webber as Executive Producer.
