With a score by Lloyd Webber and Glenn Slater, and a book by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, the musical is directed by Laurence Connor. Inspired by the 2003 film that starred Jack Black, School of Rock — The Musical tells the story of a down-on-his-luck wannabe rock star named Dewey Finn, who poses as a substitute teacher at a prep school and enlists his fifth-graders to form a rock group and conquer Battle of the Bands. The film was directed by Richard Linklater and written by Mike White.
