SCHOOL OF ROCK is the global hit musical based on the iconic movie starring Jack Black. Wannabe rock star Dewey Finn is cast out by his dive-bar bandmates and finds himself in desperate need of cash. Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite prep school, he exposes his students to the rock gods he idolises, transforming them into a mind-blowing rock band. While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock out, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, Miss Mullins, helping her rediscover the wild child within. But, will they all find redemption at the battle of the bands?

Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie, and a band of insanely talented kids that play live every show, SCHOOL OF ROCK will warm your heart and blow you away in equal measure.

It receives a wide range of major touring productions including drama, musicals, ballet, dance, opera, variety, concerts, children’s shows and one of the biggest pantomimes in the UK, with audiences from across the region and beyond taking advantage of excellent transport links to the town. Admired by performers and audiences alike for its intimate three-tiered Victorian auditorium, the Grand celebrated its 125th Anniversary in December 2019.

The arrival of a new Chief Executive in June 2015 signaled a significant period of change for the Theatre, commencing with the complete remodeling and renovation of the Front of House area, which took place in summer 2016, there was also a full replacement and upgrade of auditorium seating. During the next few years, the Theatre’s artistic vision will expand and there will be emphasis given to re-establishing the Theatre’s history of producing quality “in house” theatre for the people of Wolverhampton and beyond.
