The Theatre BAM Version (1996)
A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage!
The Emmy Award-winning 1970's Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, and more through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small-screen comeback, it’s lighting up stages everywhere -- from school multi-purpose rooms to university and regional theatres all around the country.
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.”
With its minimal band, set, costume and flexible cast requirements, SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! may be performed in virtually any space, bringing its infectious zest to a cross-generational audience.
