Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR.
Performances will be on Magik’s main stage downtown in Hemisfair on December 7 and 8, 2018.
Mainstage Jr. students have worked cooperatively to create a repertory company to produce a play for public performance on the Magik stage. Students learned about the audition and rehearsal process, while exploring intermediate acting techniques.
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.
This energetic musical follows Tom, a young schoolteacher, 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,” “Interplanet Janet” and “Conjunction Junction” bring his lesson plans vividly to life.
