Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School Of Rock is holding an online talent search for young musicians to take part in the 2021 UK Tour of the hit musical.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit, award-winning West End show, School of Rock – The Musical, opens the first UK Tour at the Birmingham Alexandra Theatre on Saturday 13 February 2021 and is launching an online search for talented young musicians.
With mini-rockers across the country currently being taught at the school of ‘mom and dad,’ we’d love to ensure that music practice remains on the time-table and today make a call out for awesome online audition submissions.
Based on the hilarious hit movie, this new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band – sensationally performed live by the production’s young actors every night with roof-raising energy!
While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.
Producers are casting a number of roles and are on the lookout for:
* Pop/Rock/ Gospel boy and girl singers
* Guitar players who must be able to ‘shred’
* Bass guitar players
* Killer drummers
* Genius Keyboard players
All must be young adults aged 8 – 12 who are under 4ft 10 inches tall
Parents of budding rock stars should visit the tour website for details of the young adults roles available as well as the submission process, rehearsal and tour dates. Submissions must be made before Friday 19 June 2020.
