The Community Theatre of Howell will perform “Schoolhouse Rock Live!, Jr.” at the Howell High School freshman campus on December 18, 19 and 20.
Based on the Emmy® Award-winning 1970s educational cartoon series, Schoolhouse Rock Live! Junior uses a wide variety of musical styles to teach grammar, math, science, history, social studies and political science while telling the story of Tom, a nerve-wracked schoolteacher 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 beloved Schoolhouse Rock songs as “Just A Bill,” “A Noun is a Person, Place or Thing” and “Conjunction Junction.” Children just discovering the TV series to “Generation X-ers” seeking a taste of nostalgia willdelight in this sure-fire entertainment that’s simply good, clean – and educational – fun.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th, and 2 p.m. on Sunday the 20th. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased in Fowlerville at Maria’s School of Dance, in Brighton at Euphoria Salon, and in Howell at Aria booksellers and the Paul Bennett Recreation Center. You can also buy tickets through ticket line by calling 517-545-1290 or by visiting the group’s website at www.cththeatre.org. The Howell High School Freshman Campus is located at 1400 W.
