Andrew Lloyd Webber to Waive SCHOOL OF ROCK Fees for Schools Producing the Musical
www.broadwayworld.com: In his latest motion of support for promoting arts education in schools, Andrew Lloyd Webber said in an interview with The Times that he plans to allow schools to produce his latest hit musical, School of Rock, for free. Moreover, Lloyd Webber will provide the groups with scripts, scores, and other necessary materials for the musical. "It's a no-brainer. School of Rock is about kids making music. Let's get on with it. You have to get music back into everybody's DNA again," Lloyd Webber said, with regard to his opinion that schools should be able to perform musicals before they finish their commercial runs on Broadway, the West End, and elsewhere.
