School of Rock

School of Rock

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?
So, hold your guitar picks high and get ready to Stick It To The Man!
Group rates available for parties of 10+, please contact our Box Office (01522 519999) for more information.
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Book by Julian Fellowes. Lyrics by Glenn Slater. Based on the Paramount movie written by Mike White. An amateur production by arrangement with The Really Useful Group.

No Turn Unstoned – Music Hall meets Variety

Our special Music Hall meets Variety show, No Turn Unstoned* takes place on the 14 and 15 October, as part of the Streatham Festival, at Immanuel and St. Andrew’s Hall, on Streatham High Road opposite the Common. There are three shows: a 7.30pm evening show on Friday, 14 October and a 2.30pm afternoon matinee; a 7.30pm evening show will take place  on Saturday, 15 October. Doors and bar open 30 minutes prior.

Music Hall started out in Victorian times in pubs, so we’re re-creating an old-fashioned pub-style atmosphere, with Mine Host directing proceedings, and of course a licensed bar and snacks available. Come in costume and enter the best costume competition!

There’ll be community singing around the piano plus lots of ‘turns’, singers of comic songs, comedians, dancers, and magicians, following the style of acts from the 1880s to the 1950s.

* the title is derived from the Glasgow music hall where unpopular turns received a violent response!

Curated by Carlos – Birmingham Royal Ballet

Curated by Carlos – Birmingham Royal Ballet

Birmingham Royal Ballet presents a tantalising triple bill, including two recently premiered works and the World premiere of a new pas de deux created especially for Carlos Acosta and Alessandra Ferri.

City of a Thousand Trades is a love letter to Birmingham, commissioned by Acosta to celebrate the city’s richly diverse heritage and melting pot of cultures. The ballet is brought to stage by Havana-born choreographer Miguel Altunaga, and dramaturg and co-Director Madeleine Kludje from Birmingham Repertory Theatre, with music by Mathias Coppens, inspired by the city’s soundscape.

Brazilian / British choreographer Daniela Cardim’s Imminent has been created with a team of international talent, including renowned composer Paul Englishby. Imminent explores the sensation of knowing that something isn’t right, even though the world around us seems to be flowing harmoniously. We need to resist the status quo and find the strength to see opportunities in paths unknown, embracing both the fear and the hope.

Chacona is a powerful ensemble piece for 16 dancers set to music by J.S. Bach, played on stage by violin, guitar and piano. Created by Spanish choreographer Goyo Montero (Nuremberg Ballet / Acosta Danza) Sadler’s Wells presents a brand new production featuring an exclusive pas de deux performed by Carlos Acosta and guest artist Alessandra Ferri.

Live music performed by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s acclaimed orchestra, the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.

Image description: Two dancers stand balanced in a moment of intimacy. Alessandra Ferri balances on point, her other leg folded up towards her chest, toe pointed inwards. She cradles the head of Carlos Acosta with one hand, the other wrapped around his shoulder. He stands with feet wide, supporting Ferri at her waist and around her lifted knee. Both wear black unitards and the background is a mottled red.

City of a Thousand Trades and Imminent are Ballet Now commissions, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s programme which seeks to find exciting, diverse, international creative talent.
