Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. (ANCSdrama Musical Production)
April 15, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The first musical production of the year!
Schoolhouse Rock Live! is one of musical theatre’s brightest and most innovative shows. Based on the Emmy Award-winning 1970s educational animated TV series, Schoolhouse uses the familiar songs from the cartoons to teach grammar, math, science, history, social studies and political science while telling the story of Tom, a young teacher nervously anticipating his first day on the job.
Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. opens at 6 a.m. as Tom Mizer, a young teacher, wakes up on his first day of work. As his alarm goes off, Tom enters and begins to rehearse his teaching technique. Soon, Tom’s thoughts begin to take life around him. In an attempt to calm himself, Tom turns on the TV. What’s on this morning? Why, it’s Schoolhouse Rock! As Tom gets drawn into the show, the first song begins. Tom thinks he may be losing his marbles and attempts to turn off the TV. His various alter egos convince him that he is okay; each one of them is a part of Tom’s mind. They’re every person, place and thing he has ever seen. Tom is still quite unconvinced that he is has not lost his mind. Undaunted, the ensemble sings, “A Noun Is a Person, Place or Thing.”
Tom tries to move into his day by looking over his lesson plan, which he feels will be a tough job. George and the rest of the company assure him that, with their help, it will be as easy as one, two, “Three Is a Magic Number.”
