Ready to rock
The Ludington High School Drama Club will bring some educational entertainment to Peterson Auditorium this weekend with the opening of “Schoolhouse Rock Live, Too!”
The show opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and continues with 7:30 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday, before concluding with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee.
“Schoolhouse Rock Live, Too!” draws inspiration from the Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon favorite, “Schoolhouse Rock!” It’s the sequel to the first Broadway stage adaptation of its namesake. The show focuses on making learning fun through musical performances based on math, science, history and grammar lessons.
Christine Plummer is directing, and she said the show was selected, in part, to honor one of the founding creative voices behind “Schoolhouse Rock!”
“I initially chose the show because Bob Dorough, one of the original lyricists, just passed away and I thought that it would be a wonderful tribute to him. But then as I returned to those wonderful songs I realized how they really educated an entire population of children (and adults!),” Plummer said.
