Online casting call for School of Rock Tour

The producers of School of Rock have put out an open call for kids aged eight to twelve years old to submit online auditions for the upcoming UK tour, which plays Scotland in March 2021.

The producers are looking for boys and girls under five foot in height to join the kids cast in the tour which opens in Birmingham in February and runs through to Oxford over Christmas 2021. There is no indication of how much of the tour they want individuals to be able to take part in.

The company is on the hunt for youngster who can sing and dance; boys who play guitar, piano and/or drums; and girls who play bass guitar, drums, or a string instrument. Auditionees will need to provide a short piece demonstrating their acting skills and, if possible, an American accent.

Full details of the audition process are on the website here and the audition form needs to be completed by no later than June 19 2020.

With 14 new songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber added to the songs from the original 2003 movie staring Jack Black, the 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.

guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing

There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. 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.

The musical has lyrics by Glenn Slater and a book by Julian Fellowes, based on Mike White’s movie script. It opened on Broadway in 2015 and in the West End in 2016. The West End production won an Olivier Award in 2017 for Outstanding Achievement in Music, for the three children’s bands who play music live every night.
