A FAMOUS movie which starred actor Jack Black is being adapted as a theatre experience in Colchester.

The Colchester Operatic Society’s CO2 amateur youth group will be performing School Of Rock at the Mercury Theatre, in Balkerne Gate, Colchester, between October 5 and 8.

Like the film itself, the play will focus on failing rock star Dewey Finn as he poses as a substitute teacher at a renowned preparatory school.

Tickets range from £15 to £25 and will feature songs such as You’re in the Band.
