FEATURED MUSICAL

Andrew Lloyd Webber s newest Broadway and West End smash, School of Rock, is based on the much-loved Jack Black film of the same name. It's already available for licensing (performers must currently be aged 18 years or younger)!

The show follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn some extra cash by posing as a teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight–A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.

School of Rock features 14 new numbers by Lloyd Webber as well as all of the original songs from the movie.

May the spirit of rock be with the schools, youth groups and community theatres who pledge allegiance to Lloyd Webber’s latest hit!

Based on the Paramount movie by Mike White
Book by  Julian Fellowes
Lyrics by  Glenn Slater
New Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Our Wicked New Album!
Wicked 's Teal Wicks headlines The Musical Company's latest album, The Ballad of Little Jo.

Penned by Mike Reid (whose many hits include “I Can’t Make You Love Me” ), Sarah Schlesinger and John Dias,  The Ballad of Little Jo  is inspired by the real-life-story of Josephine Monaghan, a young Bostonia who moved West to find a new life and disguised herself as a man to survive the harsh American frontier of the 1870s.  

In summer 2017,  The Ballad of Little Jo  played an acclaimed engagement at Two River Theater, starring Wicks, Eric William Morris, Jane Bruce and Daniel K. Isaac. Our album features the entire Two River cast.

The show is also now available for professional licensing ; contact Caroline Barnard for more details.


"Unmitigated brilliance. It is the best new musical I have seen in years.”
