About School of Rock

Sharpen your pencils, get out those books, and tune that guitar — let’s get ready to rock!

Welcome to the wild world of School of Rock the Musical, with music from the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and book by Julian Fellowes. Based on the 2003 Paramount Pictures movie written by Mike White, the story follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe musician who poses as a substitute teacher at a fancy prep school. The fun begins when it’s clear that the only lesson he’s interested in teaching is how to rock!

More information on the musical can be found in the Official Education Guide.


A Message from Andrew Lloyd Webber

"It is nearly 50 years since my first musical JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT was premiered at a London school. A year later it received its USA debut at a college in Douglaston, Queens, New York.

I can think of no better introduction to SCHOOL OF ROCK than to repeat what I wrote about JOSEPH so many years ago.

SCHOOL OF ROCK is for everyone to take part in. It is a celebration of the empowering force of music. All of us in the creative team have had a fantastic time bringing the movie to the Broadway stage and we all hope that you have as much fun when you perform the show as we had when we put it together.

Good luck and may the spirit of rock be with you."

Andrew Lloyd Webber
