The Davis Musical Theatre Company announces the opening of “Schoolhouse Rock Live!”

The Emmy Award-winning 1970s “Schoolhouse Rock” series sparked the minds of its young Saturday morning television viewers through its clever, tuneful songs and cartoons that taught three-minute lessons in history, grammar, math and more. Now a musical theater adaptation of that series is about to light up the DMTC stage.

“Schoolhouse Rock Live!” follows Tom, a school teacher nervous about his first day of teaching. As he tries to relax by watching TV, 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.” Theatergoers of all generations will delight in the catchy musical numbers and will leave the theater feeling smarter.

“Schoolhouse Rock Live!” runs Nov. 16 through Dec. 8, with 2:15 p.m. Saturday matinees (Nov. 16, 23, 30 and Dec. 7), a 7:15 p.m. Friday performance (Dec. 6), and a 2:15 p.m. Sunday show (Dec. 8). All performances are at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in East Davis.

The show is directed and choreographed by Helen Spangler with musical direction by Jia-Min Rosendale, and features Tucker Harrah-Ferguson (Tom), Tylar Traum (Dori), Megan Spangler (Dina), Lela Rosendale (Shulie), Sophia Farwell (Sherrie), Fiona Cubbage (Jo) and Cedric Hughes (George).

Tickets are $8 plus a $2 facility fee and may be purchased online at dmtc.org or by calling 530-756-3682.
