Andrew Lloyd Webber has produced the world’s first 360 degree video for his new ‘School of Rock – The Musical’.

The video, was designed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and School of Rock book writer Julian Fellowes to take full advantage of new 360° technology and allows you to navigate all angles of the classroom for an exciting and immersive experience of the song. The 360° video will accompany a new single of “You’re in the Band” produced by Lloyd Webber and music producer, Rob Cavallo.

“I am proud that School of Rock is not just the first musical to take this leap into the future, but that this video of “You’re in the Band” is the first time anyone has used the 360 degree medium in this way. It could open a lot of doors,” Andrew Lloyd Webber said in a statement.

The video can be viewed in Chrome and Firefox browsers but it does not work in Safari.

ABOUT SCHOOL OF ROCK

School of Rock – The Musical will begin preview performances at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre (1634 Broadway) on Monday, November 9, 2015, with an opening set for Sunday, December 6, 2015. Based on the smash hit 2003 film of the same title, School of Rock – The Musical will feature music from the movie, as well as an original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Glenn Slater, with a book by Julian Fellowes and direction by Laurence Connor (currently represented on Broadway by Les Miserables).

Produced by Paramount Pictures, the 2003 film was directed by Richard Linklater and starred Jack Black in a career-defining performance. The film received universal critical acclaim and was hailed by The New York Times as an “irresistible comic postscript to the rock revolution.” The film went on to gross more than $130 million worldwide.

School of Rock – The Musical 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. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.
