The West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock the Musical, which opened earlier this month, will hold children’s open casting auditions this coming Sunday, 4 December, at The Lowry Theatre in Salford, Manchester. Successful children could then form part of future casts of the show in the West End in 2017.
The production is looking to cast boys aged 8-12 years old who can play either the guitar, piano/keyboard or drums and girls aged 8-12 years old who can play the bass guitar or who have exceptional vocals. Auditions at The Lowry will commence at 10am and close at 6pm on Sunday 4 December.
The West End cast is led by David Fynn as Dewey Finn with Florence Andrews as Rosalie Mullins, Oliver Jackson as Ned Schneebly and Preeya Kalidas as Patty Di Marco. They are joined on stage at each performance by one of three teams of 13 young performers who make up Dewey’s class.
Based on the smash hit 2003 film of the same title, School of Rock features music from the movie, as well as new music written by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes. School of Rock the Musical is directed by Laurence Connor with choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter, set and costume designs by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Mick Potter, music supervision by John Rigby with Matt Smith as musical director.
