Schoolhouse Rock Live! 

Young people get ready for learning in a fun-filled atmosphere, and older folks get ready for a trip down memory lane, when Kent State University at Trumbull Summer Stock presents Schoolhouse Rock, Live! 

Directed by Eric S. Kildow, Assistant Professor & Theatre Director, Kent State University at Trumbull, with Music Direction by Matt White, the pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970's Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, and more through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small-screen comeback, it's lighting up stages everywhere -- from school multi-purpose 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 15-16, 22-23, 29-30 at 8 p.m., July 17, 24 & 31st at 3:00 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 KSU Students enrolled in summer semester.
