Presented by JMU Children’s Theatre Playshop Players. Based on the Emmy Award-winning 1970s’ Saturday morning cartoon series, this pop culture phenomenon that taught topics like history, grammar and math through clever, catchy tunes, comes to the musical stage! Tom, a school teacher nervous about his first day of class, learns from characters that emerge from his television set that he can win over his students with imagination and music, through songs like “I’m Just a Bill,” “Three Is a Magic Number” and “Conjunction Junction.”

Schoolhouse Rock Live! is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
