SCHOOL OF ROCK Rights Available for Youth Performances

Oct 12, 2015

We are thrilled to announce that in coordination with The Really Useful Group and Andrew Lloyd Webber, R&H Theatricals will grant rights for youth performances of the new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical SCHOOL OF ROCK, based on the 2003 Jack Black-led movie, prior to its Broadway opening later this year.

Applications for performances by performers age 18 and under are being accepted today with performance and perusal materials shipping in January. 

This musical is entirely about empowering kids to rock out, so what better way to herald its arrival and celebrate its themes than to allow youth performances from coast to coast, Mr. Lloyd Webber said in a statement. This will allow young fans to engage with the material in a much deeper way, and we think will only heighten enthusiasm for our Broadway premiere.

SCHOOL OF ROCK tells the story of a struggling musician who becomes an unexpected source of inspiration to a class of overscheduled prep-school students. The Broadway musical (which is directed by Laurence Connor, and has lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes) stars Alex Brightman as Dewey Finn and features a cast of student musicians. It is scheduled to begin previews at the Winter Garden Theater on Nov. 9 and open Dec. 6.
