For three special nights this summer, smash hit movie turned smash-hit Broadway tuner School Of Rock powerslides onto the Hollywood Bowl stage! Beginning its life as the Jack Black-led, endlessly quotable 2003 feature film, the high-octane story was turned into musical gold in the hands of theatre legend Andrew Lloyd Weber, Oscar-winning playwright Julian Fellowes, and Tony-winning lyricist Glenn Slater, first debuting on the Great White Way in 2015.
Brimming with pre-teen rebellion, boundless spirit, rollicking rock and roll tunes like 'Math is a Wonderful Thing' and 'Stick It to the Man', the faithful and fun adaptation has been embraced by millennials who grew up with the original, families and theatre fans the world over. Expect flaming licks, promising pint-sized performers and Lloyd-Webber's trademark OTT melodies, vibrato and balladry.
The adventure begins when down-on-his-luck rock god wannabe Dewey Finn is kicked out of No Vacancy, the band he started, for trying to upstage the lead singer. Things get much worse when his roommate Ned and Ned's domineering girlfriend Patti demand the rent he owes, and to top it off, he's fired from his job at the record store.
When he gets a phone call from the prestigious Horace Green Prep School, Dewey assumes Ned's identity and begins to teach at the school. Soon realizing the kids are pretty talented, he hatches a plan to win a local Battle of the Bands competition that may not go down too well with the school board.
Opening night: 24 July 2020
