School of Rock - The Musical

Tickets for School of Rock - The Musical



Rock has come to Gillian Lynne Theatre, London and it’s there to stay. Inspired by the film School of Rock, this musical has been performed in theatres worldwide in recent years. The result? A hilarious show, bursting with music, which captivates adults and children alike.

School of Rock was first performed on Broadway in 2015 and, shortly afterwards, in the West End of London. Following its first night in London in 2016, the musical has enjoyed emphatic success for several years now. Why? Besides its entertaining storyline and spectacular music, the talent of the entire child cast leaves no one indifferent after seeing their live music.

Get yourself moving and come to experience authentic live rock.

  • Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes

School of Rock Tickets 2022

Type of SeatPrice
Premium seats£75-£150
Awesome seats£50-£75
Great Value seats£26-£50
Bargain Seats£15-£34

  • Premium seats
    : these are the best seats, located in the stalls, with a direct, head-on view of the stage. You’ll also find premium seats in the front circle, which is the section behind the stalls. Prices go from £75 to £150, approximately.
  • Awesome seats: these seats also have a very good position, but they’re a little less central than premium seats. They’re priced from £50 to £75.
  • Great value seats: the price is much more affordable for these seats. They’re the ones at the back of the stalls and the best ones in the upper circle, priced from just £26 to £50.
  • Bargain seats: these are seats in the upper circle and possible isolated seats that have been left unsold throughout the theatre. They also include seats right over to the side, which means they don’t have the best view (though they all have a view of the stage).

If you have a limited budget, don’t worry. The Gillian Lynne Theatre is a medium-sized theatre and all its seats have a fantastic view of the stage, which means you can have fun and experience the entire musical up close.

Dewey Finn wanted to be a rock star. But his life doesn’t seem to have fulfilled his childhood expectations. Now, a failure and totally broke, he’s scraping by in a flat belonging to a charitable friend, and his friend’s girlfriend, who hates him. After threats of being thrown out, Dewey finds himself forced to get a job and accepts a substitute post at a prestigious private school.

What Dewey doesn’t know is that this decision is about to turn his life around. Even though, at first, he doesn’t like the idea of teaching academic music at a school, Dewey ends up finding his way. He’ll teach children everything they never knew about the history of rock and form his own band with them.
