A fun and high-energy performance had the crowd on its feet as The School of Rock played at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal.

The star of the show, Dewey Finn, played by Jake Sharp, took shades of Jack Black’s performance in the 2003 movie and added his own feel to the character.

The musical played on many of the humorous lines associated with the movie but also surprised with fresh jokes, referencing TikTok and popular chicken chain Nando’s to get a laugh out of the younger members of the audience who might have missed some of the classic ‘dad jokes’.

The cast and band did a tremendous job in creating a rock show environment as the musical reached its climax, while plaudits must also go to the children performers who did not miss a beat, line or dance move throughout.

There was one blip after the interval when a piece of stage furniture appeared to be stuck, which forced the announcement of technical difficulties, but within five minutes, the action resumed to a supportive applause.

It is well worth a watch. It runs until Saturday — CT.
