Details of UK open auditions for Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock

Andrew Lloyd Webber has just launched the first open London auditions to find child performers for his new musical School of Rock which is expected to open in the West End in spring 2017

He said  “We need brilliantly talented children who can act, sing and play rock instruments. In the USA, more than 22,000 kids auditioned and we ended up with a band who can rock out with the best. We have to discover that band in Britain, not just kids who act and sing. Our show depends on it.”

Lloyd Webber  launched  the show on Broadway in 2014 (where it has broken box office records at the Winter Garden Theatre) because child performance legislation there made it easier than the UK.

To audition for the UK production, children must be eight years old (nine when rehearsals begin) and under 5ft tall.
