Written by -- Julian Fellowes
Music and lyrics -- Andrew Lloyd Webber, Glenn Slater

If you've ever seen the Jack Black movie 'School of Rock' then you might worry when you see Andrew Lloyd Webber's name attached to this new musical, but don't worry -- it uses plenty of songs from the movie. And you might start worrying again when you see Julian Fellowes' name attached as a writer (he's the guy behind 'Downton Abbey' -- about as different as different can be!). But there really is no need to worru -- 'School of Rock' has already been a big hit on Broadway, and is set to do the same in London.

It tells the story of wannabe rock star Dewey Finn, who decides to earn a bit of extra money by posing as a supply teacher at a prestigious school. It's not long before he ditches the books and turns his class of straight–A pupils into a mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands competition before their parents find out?
