One Act, Pop / Rock, Revue, Rated G
Broadway Junior Version
Based on the 1970's cartoon, this faced-paced musical teaches lessons with clever, catchy tunes. (60 MINUTE VERSION FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS)
The Emmy® Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series and
pop culture phenomenon is now the basis for one of the most fun and
easily mounted musicals ever to hit the stage, SCHOOLHOUSE
ROCK LIVE! JR.
A loose, revue-like
structure allows for a great deal of flexibility in staging and cast
size in this energetic musical, which follows Tom, a young 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. Memorable songs as “Just A Bill,”
“Lolly, Lolly, Lolly,” and “Conjunction Junction” bring his lesson plans
vividly to life.
Set and costume design can be as
simple or complex as your budget or imagination allow. And because most
of the songs are so easy to learn, rehearsals are bound to be a snap.
Perfect for young performers of all ages and experience levels,
SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! JR. is a surefire
hit amongst actors and audiences alike!
