If you're a fan of the Jack Black movie School of Rock then you might worry when you see Andrew Lloyd Webber and Julian Fellowes attached to this show (Fellowes was the guy behind Downton Abbey!). But don't worry because School of Rock has already conquered Broadway and is now lighting up the West End.

Wannabe rock star Dewey Finn decides to earn a bit of extra money by posing as a supply teacher at a prestigious school. But it's not long before he ditches the boring school books about algebra and arithmetic 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 and the straight-laced headmistress find him out?

Daily Telegraph★★★★★ – "The most enjoyable few hours money can buy" Sunday Times★★★★★ – "Five-star triumph" Daily Mail★★★★★ – "Terrific fun" Daily Mirror★★★★ – "A triumph for Andrew Lloyd Webber as the king of hit musicals" Evening Standard★★★★ – "A big hearted show. Loud and cheeky, a feel-good experience with a hint of anarchic wildness"
