‘Three is a Magic Number’

December 07, 2023

The Madison Southern Players will hit the books to teach history, grammar, science, and math through catchy, clever, and familiar songs in their production of “Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR.” The hour-long show will feature classic songs from the Emmy Award-winning series of Schoolhouse Rock cartoons that taught and continue to teach students how to unpack their adjectives, memorize the Preamble to the Constitution, and discover that ‘Three is a Magic Number.”  Schoolhouse Rock covered grammar, history, science, social studies, and math  in such a fun manner that the series became a pop culture phenomenon and is now a fast paced and entertaining musical.  The Madison Southern Players are excited to bring the Schoolhouse Rock spirit of excitement, curiosity, and fun to the stage. Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. will perform in the auditorium at Madison Southern High School on Dec. 8-9 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 10 at 2 p.m.  Tickets will be $5 for students and $10 for adults. Based on the popular television show, Schoolhouse Rock Live! is a fun and educational show that teaches students and audiences of all ages that learning is fun. The show features music and lyrics by Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg, George Newall, Kathy Mandry, Lynn Ahrens, and Tom Yohe; and a book by George Keating, Kyle Hall, and Scott Ferguson. Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized materials are supplied by Music Theatre International.
