School of Rock: The Musical announces 2018 Melbourne season

The Broadway and West End smash hit musical is opening in Melbourne. 

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway and West End hit musical, School of Rock will open in Melbourne after packing out theatres throughout the US and London. 

Based on the well-loved film, the musical follows hapless dropout Dewey Finn as he teaches a new generation of students what it means to rock. 

Featuring all of the original songs from the movie alongside a new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber, the musical features a cast of guitar shredding and drum thumping child prodigies. 

“As a family, we sat down to watch the movie of School Of Rock and were immediately struck by how much it resonated with us all," said Webber. "We loved it for its audacious sense of fun and realised we had the opportunity to share this with the world in the most exciting way of all – as a great new musical. We cannot wait to see the remarkably talented group of young actor-musicians that we will uncover down under.”

School of Rock: The Musical opens at Her Majesty's Theatre from Wednesday October 31. Tickets via schoolofrockmuscial.com.au
