KEIGHLEY children with the triple-threat talents of singing, acting and playing instruments are being sought for a major stage show. Youngsters are being recruited online for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical School of Rock in time for its residency in Leeds next year.

The show, which became a West End hit after being adapted from the popular movie with Jack Black, will be performed from May 15-20 at the Grand Theatre.

Online auditions are being held for talented young musicians to join “The Band” – pop/rock/gospel boy and girl singers, guitar players who must be able to ‘shred’, bass guitar players, killer drummers and Genius keyboard players.

All entrants must be aged eight to 12, and no taller than 4ft 10. Visit for full details, including submission process, rehearsal and tour dates. All entries must be submitted by Friday June 19.

Based on the film comedy, School of Rock 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 – sensationally performed live by the production’s young actors every night with roof-raising energy.

Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie, the show sets out to deliver face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses.

Book tickets for the show by visiting or by calling 0844 848 2700.
