“Conjunction Junction, what's your function?" Novi Parks presents Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr Jan 25-28
NOVI, Mich., January 9, 2018 – Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services is excited to present a youth musical theatre production of Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. on January 25-28 at the Novi Civic Center. The 49 actors range from first to eighth grade and hail from Novi and the surrounding area. The actors are divided into two casts, with each cast performing three shows.
Based on the 1970’s Emmy Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series, this fast-paced musical covers topics like grammar, science, economics, and history with clever, catchy tunes. The show follows Tom, a young schoolteacher, who 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. Memorable songs like "Just a Bill," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly" and "Conjunction Junction" bring his lesson plans vividly to life.
