School House Rock Live, Junior opens at the Mainstage Center for the Arts on Wednesday, August 2 at 7:30 pm followed by performances on Thursday and Friday, August 3 and 4 at 10:30 am. All shows are in the air -conditioned comfort of the Dennis Flyer Theatre, located in Lincoln Hall on the Blackwood Campus of Camden County College.

This is one of musical theatre’s brightest and most innovative shows.

Based on the Emmy Award-winning 1970’s educational cartoon series, Schoolhouse uses a plethora of musical styles to teach grammar, math, science, history, social studies and political science while telling the story of young teachers, nervously anticipating their first day on the job.

Advertising executive David B. McCall came up with the idea for "Schoolhouse Rock" when he was vacationing with his family one summer. He marveled at the fact that his young son was having trouble learning his multiplication tables, but could remember nearly any lyric from a Rolling Stones song. Hoping to find a way to translate kids’ natural love for music into a bridge to better learning, McCall recruited Bob Dorough, a noted jazz pianist and composer, and he began the journey.

Today, 25 years after the clips first aired, "Schoolhouse Rock" is bigger than ever. Originally produced by Theatre BAM at the Cafe’ Voltaire in Chicago, the stage version has been a huge hit. The Broadway Junior version of Schoolhouse Rock Live! premiered in 1998 and is now being widely produced.

Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. will be performed by almost 200 of the areas most talented students as a culmination of the work done at Summer Stage, a performance intensive program sponsored by the Mainstage Center for the Arts.
