A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage!
The Emmy Award-winning 1970's Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, and more through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small-screen comeback, it’s lighting up the stage at BPA this summer!
SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! JR. follows Tom, a nerve-wracked 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, through such songs as “Just A Bill,” “Interplanet Janet,” and “Conjunction Junction.”
Interim Director of Education Zandi Carlson directs a super-charged cast of 31 Theatre School students featuring Josh Moff, Carter Wolff, Chloe Bohonos, Delaney Taylor, Freeman Tuohy, Mia Alpaugh, Libby Clements-Hall, Sophie Eldridge, Simone McGraw, Abi Curtis, Tessa Longley, Bently Eldridge, Cayley Mead, Zac Norberg, Gracie Harris, Bennett Ross, Josh Mead, Katie Irvin, Cat Pasion, Alison Sherwin, Marisa Leinaweaver, Lexi Hegarty, Charlotte Crampton, Rose Weaver, Olivia Lunt, Trey Field-Bennett, Sophie Hegarty, Jameson Payne, Mazzy C.
