I grew up with School House Rock – it was a Saturday morning staple at my house, and in the houses of most of the kids in my generation, and generations before and after us. The show is iconic! My children watch School House Rock videos at school! The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is bringing this beloved educational show to life in February with their version of “School House Rock Live JR” at the Taft Theatre. It’s time to take a trip down memory lane with your kids and see a childhood classic. And if you know who the Rusty Griswald’s are, you’ll be excited to hear that they are performing during the show. It’s going to be grand! I have a voucher good for two tickets to this show to give away to one lucky reader. Read more details about the show and then at the bottom of this post you can enter to win the ticket voucher.
Details about School House Rock Live JR ::
This musical is adapted from the Emmy® Award-winning educational cartoon that rocked the house from the ‘70s to ‘80s each Saturday morning. SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK LIVE! JR. hits the Taft Theatre stage with a rock-and-roll revue, featuring local rock sensation, The Rusty Griswolds!
Tom is a frantic school teacher who is nervous about his first day teaching. When he turns on his television to calm his nerves, his surroundings come to life and his lesson plan is illuminated. Throughout the show, various characters help Tom create fun and interactive lessons to engage his students in all sorts of subjects. This show features middle school education through song and dance, including classic hits like “Conjunction Junction” and “Three is a Magic Number.”
And what better way to bring this musical to life than through the talents of the incredible local rock band, The Rusty Griswolds. Since 1999, The Rusty Griswolds have been performing; bringing energy as only they can to the best music of the 80s and SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! JR. will be no exception!
