School of Rock: The Musical – An A-grade cast and crew
The 2003 comedy film, School of Rock, was a runaway hit with hilarious performances from Jack Black and other cast members. In 2016, the London West End welcomed the stage adaptation of the movie, titled School of Rock: The Musical. Since its debut at the New London Theatre, the production has impressed audiences and critics alike. Don’t miss your chance to catch this lively and funny musical that will brighten up your day.
Only the best performers can bring this Andrew Lloyd Webber tale to life on the stage. Well-known Welsh actor Noel Sullivan portrays the protagonist, Dewey Finn. People may recall Sullivan as being a participant in the talent show, Popstars. He was also a part of Hear’Say, a famous British pop group.
Laura Tebbutt takes on the role of Principal Rosalie Mullins in the production. She previously performed in Fiddler on the Roof and Into the Woods. Her recording vocalist works extend to movies, such as Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Mamma Mia 2 and Mary Poppins Returns. As well as the adult characters, the musical also stars several young actors, who portray Dewey’s students in the musical. Each of these talented children can not only dance and sing but also play a few musical instruments as well.
Dewey Finn is a lover of rock music and dreams of becoming a rockstar. However, luck does not favour him, and his bandmates oust him from his band. On top of that, he almost loses his apartment as well. This is when he decides to impersonate a substitute teacher at Horace Green prep school to earn some money. As the days pass, he learns that some of the straight-A students at the school have a hidden penchant for Rock music.
He forms a band with the most talented students and enters a Battle of the Bands competition. However, he needs to keep the band a secret from the students’ parents and guardians, at least until they can win the contest. Will they succeed? Watch School of Rock: The Musical to find out how the story ends for Dewey and his band.
