About School of Rock at New Theatre Oxford
Last Christmas, we weren’t able to celebrate in person with our loved ones, so here’s to making Christmas 2021 a special one. And what better way to celebrate than watching a treat for all the family with all your family.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End and Broadway hit musical School of Rock comes to the New Theatre Oxford from Monday 13 December to Saturday 01 January 2022.
It’s going to be a not so silent night in Oxford this Christmas!
School of Rock is the global hit musical based on the iconic movie starring Jack Black. Wannabe rock star Dewey Finn is cast out by his dive-bar bandmates and finds himself in desperate need of cash.
Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite prep school, he exposes his students to the rock gods he idolises, transforming them into a mind-blowing rock band.
While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock out, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful but uptight headmistress, Miss Mullins, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
But will they all find redemption at the battle of the bands?
Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie, and a band of insanely talented kids that play live every show, School of Rock will warm your heart and your family’s and blow you away in equal measure.
Don’t miss out! Book your tickets today to see the hit musical that everyone’s raving about.
2 hours 30 minutes incl. interval
