Get ready to stick it to the man Eastbourne, because Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End and Broadway hit musical School of Rock is coming to rock out at The Congress Theatre!
School of Rock is the global hit musical based on the iconic movie starring Jack Black. Wannabe rock star Dewey Finn is cast out by his dive-bar bandmates and finds himself in desperate need of cash. Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite prep school, he exposes his students to the rock gods he idolises, transforming them into a mind-blowing rock band. While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock out, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, Miss Mullins, helping her rediscover the wild child within. But, will they all find redemption at the battle of the bands?
Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie, and a band of insanely talented kids that play live every show, School of Rock will warm your heart and blow you away in equal measure.
Don’t miss out! Book your tickets today to see the hit musical that everyone’s raving about.
"The most enjoyable few hours money can buy"
"Lloyd Webber's School Of Rock is a Five Star triumph"
"I laughed. I cried. I rocked"
"School Of Rock is pretty much the most fun you can have at the theatre and ends with one of the best twenty minutes of a show I can remember. I liked it so much I'm coming back again this week!"
"The stars of the show however are the children... The four instrumentalists in the roles of Freddy, Zack, Lawrence and Katie bring so much talent, not only playing but also singing and acting so naturally - these are some truly unbelievable kids. The whole group, from the larger roles of Summer, Billie and Tomika, to the supporting roles of Marcie, Shonelle, Sophie, James and Mason are just wonderful, not only can you tell that they are loving every minute of the experience, they are also the reason the audience is too. These are the stars of the future without a doubt!"
