Tampa, Fla. – The Patel Conservatory at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts will present Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. in TECO Theater, Nov. 5-8.
After seven weeks of preparation, about 40 Patel Conservatory students in grades two through eight will perform the musical Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. Based on the popular 1970s cartoon shorts, this faced-paced show teaches lessons through the use of clever, catchy tunes. The Emmy® Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series and pop culture phenomenon is now the basis for one of the most fun musicals ever to hit the stage.
Directed jointly by the music and theater faculty of the Patel Conservatory, the collaboration among the directors will offer students the experience of working with multiple directors and the audience the opportunity to enjoy collaborative creativity at its finest.
Performances are Thursday, Nov. 5 and Friday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 8 and Sunday, Nov. 9 at 1 and 4 p.m. Regularly priced tickets to Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. start at $20 and may be purchased by calling 813.229.STAR (7827) or 800.955.1045 outside Tampa Bay, in person at the Straz Center Ticket Office or online at www.strazcenter.org.
