SCHOOL is due to start again next spring – School of Rock that is!

Andrew Lloyd Webber's hit musical based on Jack Black's comedy film can be seen at the Grand Theatre in Leeds from May 17-22 next year.

The show, which features a cast of talented child musicians, is going on tour following its West End and Broadway success.

Wannabe rock star Dewey Finn is cast out by the fellow musicians in his dive-bar band 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?

A spokesman said: "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 blow you away in equal measure."

The Grand Theatre warns that School of Rock contains occasional strong language and may not be suitable for very young children.

The script was written by Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey, and the show is directed by Laurence Connor, who directed Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat last year at the London Palladium.

School of Rock opened at the New London Theatre in 2016, attracting five-star reviews and winning the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
