“School House Rock Live” is the stage adaptation of the Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series. The series taught history, grammar, math, science and politics through the use of clever, tuneful songs.

Tom, a school teacher, 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.

The show includes familiar songs such as “Just a Bill,” “Interplanet Janet,” “Conjunction Junction,” “A Noun Is A Person, Place, Or Thing,” “Three Is A Magic Number,” “Unpack Your Adjectives,” “The Preamble” and “Do The Circulation.”

Jacob Hopkins plays Tom, Jimin Moon is George, Emily O’Flaherty is Dori, Miyah Thompson is Shulie, Hunter LaMar is Joe and Keri Ruanto is Dina. Featured performers are Hayley Harrison as Interplanet Janet and Ryan Everitt as the Elvis soloist.

Members of the ensemble include Elizabeth Campos, Camille Cardoza, Sophie Conteras, Angie Cooper, Faith Dennie, EllaRose Eldon, Monique Galvan, Abby Harrison, James Hayakawa, Jordan Hayakawa, Marcus Lucia, Mia Piazza, Bailey Robinson-Burmester, Natalia Sterling, Zoe Wais and Casey Wathen.

“School House Rock Live” is directed and choreographed by Crissi Cairns Kessler with music direction by Lori Jarvey. Spenser Micetich is the assistant director and assistant choreographer.

Costumes are designed by Mary Kessler and Susie Cairns. Set design is by John Bowles and lighting design is by Jeff Kean. Set projections are by Dale Proctor.

The show is underwritten by Jennifer Goldman, D.D.S., and Amy Tran, D.D.S.
