The long-awaited musical School of Rock is set to bring waves of rock 'n' roll to Beijing audiences from March 22 to April 14 at Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center.

The rock musical, based on the 2003 film of the same name, follows slacker Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school.

There he manages to turn a class of straight-A students into an ear-popping, guitar-shredding, bass-slapping and mind-blowing rock band.

With a new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Julian Fellowes and an incredible cast of children shredding guitars, pounding drums and rocking out live, School of Rock is a cultural feast for all ages.

In 2015, the rock musical premiered on Broadway, causing a tremendous response in the industry. And the same reputation has followed its world tour in London, Melbourne and Seoul.
