School of Rock – The Musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit, award-winning West End show is coming to the New Theatre Oxford for Christmas 2021.
Tickets for the show will go on sale in the coming weeks.
Based on the hilarious hit movie, this new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band – sensationally performed live by the production’s young actors every night with roof-raising energy.
While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie, this high-octane smash delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses.
The production opened in London in November 2016 to 5-star reviews and widespread critical acclaim and won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
School of Rock – The Musical features new music written by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid, Sister Act) and a book by Julian Fellowes. It is directed by Laurence Connor (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, London Palladium 2019).
Andrew Lloyd Webber is the composer of some of the world’s best known musicals including Cats, Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Phantom of the Opera (which this year celebrates its 30th anniversary) and Sunset Boulevard.
Tickets for the show, which will run from December 13 2021 – January 1 2022, will go on sale in the coming weeks.
Once on sale, tickets can be purchased from the New Theatre box office on George Street, by ringing 0844 871 3020 or www.atgtickets.com/oxford
