Starring two Kent-based actors - Aadi Patel from Hayes and Ava Masters from Maidstone - School of Rock follows failed rockstar Dewey Finn as he turns a group of straight-A prep school students into a guitar-shredding rock band.

Musical theatre legend Andrew Lloyd Webber revealed his version of the rock ‘n’ roll family comedy in 2015. His music is accompanied by lyrics from Tony Award-nominee Glenn Slater.

The show features 14 new songs, alongside the original numbers from the film - all performed live by the band of young actors each night.

Since the tour launched last September Jake Sharp has led the adult cast as Dewey, having previously performed the role in the West End.

He is joined by Rebecca Lock as school principal Rosalie Mullins, Matthew Rowland as Dewey's best friend Ned Schneebly and Nadia Violet Johnson as Ned’s girlfriend, Patty Di Marco.
