Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr.
- How you probably remember Schoolhouse Rock: as a youngster in the ’70s and ’80s when it originally aired (or in the ’90s when it was revived); as an elementary-school student with a hip teacher; or as a freshman legislator brushing up on how a bill becomes a law
- Songs that, once heard, can never be erased from an impressionable young mind: “Just a Bill,” “Conjunction Junction,” and”Lolly, Lolly, Lolly”
- How you’ll hear those songs now: on stage, via an original story in which Tom, a young schoolteacher nervous about his first day on the job, encounters various characters who show him how to win over his charges’ imaginations
Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
