When Lloyd Webber and Julian Fellowes let down their hair, the results are hardly anti-establishment. But the kids are genuinely talented and this is good-natured entertainment

Amazing, had a great night!! Got goosebumps at the kids playing their guitars and singing, they were incredible. I would definitely recommend!!
Sep 23, 2019
From Start to Finish Absolutely Incredible. The Children are So Talented ( Yes they DO play their instruments ) All the actors were Amazing most playing 2 or 3 characters but unless you read the Programme you would never know. The Sets Costumes Music and Lighting were Superb . Special mention for Noel Sullivan as The Lead Dewie Finn. He was certainly the star from start to finish. It took all my might to stop myself from Standing up Stomping My Feet and Sticking it to The Man. I'll definitely be Revisiting soon !!

I didn’t like the School of Rock at all. I only went to watch because is one of ten musicals in demand at the moment. Maybe I just set my expectations to high.

Brilliant show. Great fun . The children were excellent. Can’t fault it at all.

Stage actors match characters from the movie really well. The actor that plays Fin is great and the kids are amazing, they even play the instruments themselves. By the end you will come out of the theatre singing the "Stick it to the band" song. Singing, dancing and acting all brilliant. The theatre itself is a lovely size so no matter where your seats, everyone has a good view.

I bought the tickets for my daughters birthday and she was over the moon with the performance and will definitely be back again!
