2024 - School of Rock

Director: Fiona Kuhn-Thompson

Musical Director: Jamie Cordell

Choreographer: Lindsay Swift

Associate Director: Keir Gilbert-Halladey

School is now in session...

Based on the hilarious hit movie of the same name, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn (played in the movie by Jack Black), 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 strait-laced, straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band, much to the horror of their very strict parents. 

Can the students win the Battle of the Bands competition? Will they win their parents’ approval?  Will the other teachers rebel and get Dewey dismissed?  All will be revealed! 

The whole family can Rock along with a cast of 60 and a hugely talented, live student band, thrashing out tracks including Teacher’s Pet and Stick it to the Man, or empathise with Headteacher, Rosalie Mullins who ruefully reminisces about when she was fun and Stevie Nicks was her idol.
