The world-known English composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has announced the new cast of the West End production of School of Rock – The Musical!
David Fynn (Undateable, Leap Year, The Inbetweeners) is to lead the London cast as Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star and Gary Trainor is to alternate the role.
He is joined by Florence Andrews as Rosalie Mullins, Oliver Jackson as Ned Schneebly and Preeya Kalidas as Patty Di Marco and 3 teams of thirteen young actors.
The musical is based on Richard Linklater and Mike White’s School of Rock movie, starring Jack Black as Dewey Finn. Dewy, a failed rock singer and guitarist, disguise himself as a substitute teacher in a strict elementary private school and transforms his class into a rock band.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “I’m delighted to be bringing School of Rock – The Musical to the West End this October, following what has been a hugely exhilarating experience creating and opening the show on Broadway, where we’ll soon celebrate our first birthday.  As many people know I’m passionate about children engaging with music from an early age, and to that end I cannot wait for UK audiences to see the remarkably talented group of young actor musicians we have found for our production.  They’re currently blowing the roof off our rehearsal rooms working with our wonderful cast of grown ups led by the hilarious David Fynn.”
