Schools out for summer, or is it?
The fantastic cast of School of Rock are head banging back to the classroom swapping pens and paper for guitars and drumsticks in preparation for the show’s UK touring debut at Hull New Theatre this September.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash – hit musical will rock ‘n’ roll all night from 7 to 18 September and Stick It To The Man before anyone else in the country.
Based on the iconic movie starring Jack Black, this hilarious show follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn some extra cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school.
There he introduces a class of straight-A students to the gods of rock and turns them 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.
From the classroom to the concert hall, let the battle of the bands commence, who gets to be the king of Mount Rock?
School of Rock is at Hull New Theatre from Tuesday 7 to Saturday 18 September. Tickets on sale now at hulltheatres.co.uk or 01482 300 306
