The production, which received its world premiere at the Winter Garden Theatre in 2016, welcomed guests such as Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Helen Mirren and Sting on its opening night.In April, Stevie Nicks joined the cast on stage with an impromptu performance of Rhiannon.

When the Broadway production was launched, Andrew Lloyd Webber called for schools and youth groups to create their own productions of the score, and there are currently plans in the UK to do the same.

There is also a nationwide search underway to find young performers to join the cast on stage each night.

School of Rock – The Musical is produced in the West End by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with Madeline Lloyd Webber acting as executive producer.
