Based on the pop-culture phenomenon that entertained a generation of American kids, Schoolhouse Rock Live! is a fun & exciting musical journey through grammar, history, geography, science and outer space! Audiences will join Tom the Schoolteacher and all the classic favorite Schoolhouse Rock characters for 45 jam-packed minutes of singing, dancing and learning! Kids of all ages will fall in love with these clever, catchy and classic songs – including “I'm Just a Bill,” “Interplanet Janet” and “Conjunction Junction!”
In addition to the Saturday morning performance designed to give families a day at the theatre, the Lunchbox Series features a special performance on Friday, Nov. 16 that is custom-designed as a field trip opportunity for schools, day cares and other groups interested in supplementing their arts curriculum - and tickets for Nov. 16th are going fast.
Both performances include a bagged lunch from April’s Pie Company, Florida Rep's River District neighbor, a post-show discussion with the actors and an interactive workshop led by the Edison & Ford Winter Estates' Wild Wizard.
