A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math and more through clever, tuneful songs.

Schoolhouse Rock Live! follows Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such songs as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction.”

Large ensemble cast, with many opportunities for featured performances.

Note from the directors:

“This Production is a non-stop whirlwind of fun and learning. Originally, this show was written for 6 people, but we are looking to make our production a cast of 50-60!!! What’s most exciting about this show is that we are looking or EVERYONE to get involved. We have some specific skills needed, but above all we are looking to make learning fun.

We Have 6 Main Characters, Tom (the teacher) and then 5 “personalities” (2 guys, 3 girls) who help Tom along as he prepares for his first day teaching. These 6 will be the main people heading up each number and dialogue. With a cast this size, there are some changes made to involve more cast.

Featured Singing and soloist Needs:
Bill – for “I’m Just a Bill” (This will be a child)
A barber shop quartet /Jersey boys – for “A Victim of Gravity”
Lunch Lady – for “Great American Melting Pot”

More soloists are likely to be added.

Special Dance Needs
Tap – for “Lolly Lolly Lolly”
Swing – for “Victim of Gravity”

With the divisions made in our county and community over the last few years, this show is more important than ever. We need people of all ages, ethnicities, genders, and walks of life.”
