School of Rock in the West End 2019 - current cast, best tickets and theatre

School Of Rock is continuing in London’s West End for 2019 – here’s all you need to know.

From the current West End cast of School Of Rock to the latest and best ticket offers, here’s everything about the show.

Based on the hit film, School Of Rock 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.

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.

The score features 14 new songs from legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber together with all the original songs from the movie.
