The show must go on. Join us for MTG's second live-streamed performance! A social distanced pop culture phenomenon, connecting members of our beloved community in these ~unprecedented times~. Get your free tickets here!
 
A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970s 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 stages everywhere – from school multi-purpose rooms to university and regional theatres all around the country.
 
Schoolhouse Rock Live! 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," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly" and "Conjunction Junction."
 
Based on an idea by David McCall and a television series created by George Newall and Tom Yohe. Special thanks to Original Cast Members, Joseph Beal, Dina Joy Byrd, Shulie Cowen, Dori Goldman and Tom Mizer
