SCHOOL OF ROCK celebrates 500 performances in the West End

Last night, 30 December 2017 the West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock – The Musical celebrated 500 performances at the New London Theatre.  The kids and adult cast gathered on stage before the milestone performance to celebrate the show’s achievement.

Based on the 2003 film starring Jack Black, SCHOOL OF ROCK is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s first rock musical since the 1971 smash hit Jesus Christ Superstar. The show premiered on Broadway in 2015 and made its UK premiere at the New London Theatre in 2016.

Dewey Finn is a washed up, unemployed guitarist, sponging off of his long time friend Ned who has been letting him live, rent-free with him for most of his adult life. When Ned’s girlfriend insists he throw Dewey out for not paying his way, Dewey realises he needs to do something to make some money and fast! When Dewey answers the phone to a school principal, looking for supply teacher Ned, Dewey sees the high income opportunity as a great way to make him some money fast so he pretends to be Ned and embarks on a few weeks adventure, posing as a school teacher.
