Discovery: Schoolhouse Rock Live!

Mar 4, 2022

60 Minutes

No Intermission


Academic subjects will never seem boring again when presented through mega-hits like “Conjunction Junction,” “Just a Bill,” “Interplanet Janet” or “Three is a Magic Number.”

SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! explodes onto the stage updated for a whole new generation with imaginative image projections and a rock’n’roll feel. The live performance centers around Tom, a nervous young man on his first day of being a schoolteacher, who turns on the television to calm himself down and is visited by three aspects of his personality who remind him how learning can be fun. Originally aired on the ABC television network from 1973-1985, then revived in the ’90s and ’00s, “Schoolhouse Rock” was a collection of clever, animated shorts that taught academic topics including grammar, mathematics, civics and science.
