Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher nervous about his first day of teaching, tries to relax by watching TV when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set. Together, they show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such beloved songs as “Just A Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction.” This stage adaptation of the Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series is fun for all ages!

Take a look into the lives of one of the creators of Schoolhouse Rock.
