About the Show:
Directed and Choreographed by: Cara Scalera, TGS Production Manager
Musically Directed by: Laura Petrie
Tom is a nervous school teacher about to start his first day of teaching. He tries to relax with a little TV when various characters representing facets of his personality materialize from the television set. Tom is hesitant at first to accept their help, but with a little friendly prodding, they help Tom see how great a teacher he has been all along! Reviving the catchy, playful Saturday morning hits of the 70s, Schoolhouse Rock Live!, Jr. is both educational and enjoyable for everyone!
