The Emmy Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series and pop culture phenomenon is now the basis for one of the most fun, energetic musicals ever to hit the stage, Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR.


Tom, a young schoolteacher, 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.


Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. is a surefire hit for audiences of all ages!
