“It is nearly 50 years since my first musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” was premiered at a London school. A year later it received its USA debut at a college in Douglaston, Queens, New York.
I can think of no better introduction to “School of Rock” than to repeat what I wrote about “Joseph” so many years ago.
“School of Rock” is for everyone to take part in. It is a celebration of the empowering force of music.
Parents and teachers too can join in the band, although I strongly advise leaving the onstage playing to the kids!
All of us in the creative team have had a fantastic time bringing the movie to the Broadway stage and we all hope that you have as much fun when you perform the show as we had when we put it together.
Good luck and may the spirit of rock be with you.”
– Andrew Lloyd Webber
