I honestly wasn’t sure how I’d enjoy the show or not as I went as a birthday surprise with my sisters, but after only 5 mins into to show, to the last clap i had a brilliant afternoon. A real fun factor uplifting performance. The children were brilliant. I want to see the show again and take my granddaughter..... a great recommendation for ALL age groups
The lead actor was phenomenal
A Fantastic show, brilliant and entertaining..

Absolutely brilliant. What a talented cast. Would highly recommend.
I took a disabled relation and we both had a fantastic time. It was great to see some talented performers - with support from adult cast.
Epic! Me and my 13 year old daughter loved it..
Took my 13 year old daughter and we both had a fantastic time. Amazing cast and full credit to the kids. All instruments are played by the actual cast members too. A must see show.
Fantastic show great acting and music
Saw School of Rock yesterday it was Brilliant from start to finish.Sat in the upper circle at the side in A74 the view was amazing and the seats were comfy despite being sold as restricted view.The main actor was amazing.The show was full of energy throughout the children were brilliant. And very talented.Would highly recommend this theatre show.Great value and great entertainment.
Brilliant performance! 5 star show
The kids were amazing and loved the conductor and the band!
Dynamic and entertaining. The children were very talented and Noel Sullivan was a perfect Dewey.
Amazing, had a great night!! Got goosebumps at the kids playing their guitars and singing, they were incredible. I would definitely recommend!!
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 !!
Recreates the original film on stage with to some minor tweaks - still very much enjoyable and uplifting fun.
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.
So, so good! A must see! Such brilliant performers, we had such fun...thank all !
This was an amazing musical, beautifully crafted by a fantastic cast. The young people were outstanding - brilliant role models for my two grandchildren, aged 10 and 11, who absolutely loved every minute of the show - as did their aged grandparents!
Really enjoyable and the children are so talented. Definitely for primary/ teenage children to enjoy and of course us adults.
Enjoyable , it was great , just what is needed for all the family to get over the holiday blues.
So much fun
great show took my 10 year old grandson for his birthday
I finally got to see School of Rock and it was worth the wait. The show was very enjoyable , high energy with the children acting , singing and playing the instruments the show made me laugh out loud at many moments and also made me feel a bit tearful at times. The show was great and one I could have watched again straight away A Must See
Talented cast delivering a high energy musical performance from start to finish. Feel good show suitable for all the family to enjoy.
The whole cast and show from the start was 5 stars. If there was was a down side I could not see it. Great, great, GREAT! Well done everyone.
An absolutely amazing time! Those kids seriously rock and I feel privileged to have been in their presence whilst they are so young. This is a thing of beauty and everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime!
Brilliant production, and the kids were AMAZING!
This was one of the best shows I have ever seen. The cast and children were great. The end finale almost brought a tear to my eyes , they were so good and only young
Great show, fantastic energy - loved production - enjoyed by all the family who ranged form teen to senior!!
The show is energetic and the kids are awesome!
Took family with wide age range from 4-74 and all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Went to see musical after having seen the film. Well worth it, acting was superb. Would go and see it again.
This show is packed with such talented people!! The children are just amazing!
very pleased to have watched it quite entertaining
My son is only six years old and hasn't seen many musical. However, got him a ticket for this and he absolutely loved it. So much that he asked Alexa to play school of rock almost everyday. He even bought himself a plastic guitar in a yard sale to play school of rock.
Great energy and story. I enjoyed every moment.
Full of energy and talent, well worth seeing again and again
Fantastic show. My children 10 & 5 loved it! It was a super family night.
awesome best show ever.
What a musical, if you are or not a lover of the movie itself. I can truly tell you that this musical is all go from the very start. I enjoyed it that much that I would love to come back and see it again. You won't be disappointed.
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!
We loved this vibrant and fun show that will appeal to all ages! The talented cast really did justice to the musical score and transported us, the audience, right into the heart of the show at the end...
Filled with energy , fun and rock . A brilliant show you’ll be singing ‘ stick it to the man ‘ for days !!!
It was an excellent production we took our 13 year old daughter who thought it was brilliant defiantly worth a watch
