A HAOS & HATY Productions Musical

"You're in the band!"

Based on the cult film and with a rocking new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber, School of Rock follows slacker Dewey Finn as 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! As they prepare for the Battle of the Bands, can Dewey make them embrace the empowering message of rock?

School of Rock, with its sensational live kids’ rock band (yes, they really do play live on stage!) is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music. May the spirit of rock be with HAOS Productions and all those who pledge allegiance to one of Lloyd Webber’s biggest hits!

An amateur production by arrangement with The Really Useful Group Ltd.

† - PREVIEW NIGHT - This show is a particularly challenging presentation with young musicians playing live on stage and this may result in our opening night displaying sound and lighting at a quality less than we would prefer. Therefore we are selling tickets to the Wednesday performance at a discounted rate to account for any possible technical imperfections.


Take a look at the video below of the highlights of the west end production, hopefully you will see just how much of an amazing challenge our youngsters will face, and how much you can look forward to watching them play and perform.
