The home of Cheltenham Youth Theatre and newly launching for 2023, Bromsgrove Youth Theatre!



school of rock!

We are delighted to announce our next show to be performed at Parabola Arts Centre, April 2024!

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

Based on the hit movie, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a substitute 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. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress finding out?

Based on the Paramount movie by Mike White

Script by Julian Fellowes

Lyrics by Glenn Slater

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Our Cheltenham cast and Bromsgrove cast will all come together for one amazing weekend of performances in Cheltenham, showcasing the wonderful talent of young performers spanning two counties!

Encore Arts directors will be collaborating with singing, dance and music specialists to bring this awesome show to life. Weekly rehearsals launch Autumn 2023.

Casting decisions will be based on early workshops and members who would like to audition for principal roles will have the chance to do so in our second session. There are plenty of parts for everyone and we will ensure everyone has a fabulous part they're proud of!

Female Performer
Rock Concert

We will also be training up a young rock band to play our music live for the show! Music tuition will run as a separate course in 2024, but cast members can have the opportunity to take part in both.

"I'm gonna form my own band. And we are gonna start a revolution. Okay?"

Join us and STICK IT TO THE MAN!!!
