School of Rock the musical - from film to stage
It's no easy task taking a gang of pre-teens and making them the stars of a stage show. Webber and Fellowes, however, manage it with a foot-tapping vitality that makes a pleasing counterpoint to the modern digital world. With his score for School of Rock the Musical Andrew Lloyd Webber revisits his Jesus Christ Superstar rock roots so while kids enjoy the action, parents riff along to musical excerpts from bands like The Rolling Stones and Deep Purple.
School of Rock the Musical premiered at Broadways' Winter Garden Theatre in early December 2015 and opened in London's West End the following November.
The basic plot of School of Rock the Musical is simple. Reserved prep-schoolers let their inner rock gods and chicks out of the bag much to the horror of their prim teachers and fee-paying parents. Dewey Finn is an ageing member of a rock band but when his girlfriend demands he stop freeloading and start paying the rent he accidentally lands a job as a supply teacher in an elite New York school. With zero teaching skills, Dewey bypasses the curriculum and decides to turn the members of the school orchestra from talented players of classical music into a rock lineup destined to win the Battle of the Bands.
School of Rock The Musical Melbourne cast
The Melbourne cast for the School of Rock musical was announced earlier in 2018 and Sydney-based actor and composer Brent Hill was named in the lead role of Dewey Finn, unforgettably portrayed by Jack Black in the movie. Hill will be joined each performance by an alternating cast of 36 young performers from all over Australia.
