EVITA charts the story of Eva Peron, wife of Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.

Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, Oh What A Circus, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall. This smash hit show truly promises to be THE THEATRICAL EVENT OF THE YEAR!

SCHOOL OF ROCK
 Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new hit musical, based on the much-loved film of the same name. 
Based on the Paramount movie by Mike White 
Book by Julian Fellowes 
Lyrics by Glenn Slater 
New Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

HER MAJESTY’S THEATRE MELBOURNE
from 31 October 2018


Rock got no reason, rock got no rhyme... You better get me to school on time!

Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within.

Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie, this high-octane smash delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses! The Daily News cheers, ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER “AWAKENS THE EMPOWERING MESSAGE OF ROCK!” and Time Out New York raves, “SCHOOL’s in – FOREVER!”


SCHOOL OF ROCK is now available to academic schools in Victoria for performances from April 1st 2019. (Shows may not be announced prior to April 1st 2019). 
Conditions Apply. School of Rock is not yet available to any other schools in other states of Australia or New Zealand. Please contact our office for more details on how to pledge allegiance to the band!
