Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR.

May 3 - 11, 2025

RLT’s Louise “Scottie” Stephenson Amphitheatre (General Admission)

A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. Tom, a nerve-wracked 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. Inspired by the Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math and more through clever, tuneful songs, experience Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. in RLT’s outdoor amphitheatre.

Originally Conceived and Directed by Scott Ferguson
Book by Scott Ferguson, Kyle Hall and George Keating
Music and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Bob Dorough, David Frishberg, Kathy Mandry, George Newall and Tom Yohe
