Get Your Adverbs Here at Schoolhouse Rock Live!

Kent State University at Trumbull Summer Stock is pleased to announce the production of Schoolhouse Rock Live! as its summer musical. Young people, get ready for learning in a fun-filled atmosphere, and older folks, get ready for a trip down memory lane.

Directed by Eric S. Kildow, assistant professor and theatre director at Kent State Trumbull, with music direction by Matt White, the pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math and more through clever, catchy songs, is not only making a small-screen comeback, it is lighting up stages everywhere – from school multipurpose rooms to university and regional theatres all around the country.

Schoolhouse Rock Live! follows Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher 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, through such songs as "Just A Bill," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly," and "Conjunction Junction."

Show dates are July 22-23 and July 29-30 at 8 p.m., and July 17, 24 and 31 at 3 p.m. To purchase tickets, call the box office at 330-675-8887 or email trumbullboxoffice@kent.edu. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, $10 for children under 12, and free for Kent State students enrolled in summer semester.
