Junction, What’s your Function?
Marcos - Christian Youth Theater (CYT) students will present Schoolhouse Rock Live! at
Mission Hills High School. February 23- March 4. In the 1970's a group of
educators got together and came up with a fun and simple solution to the
oft-asked question: Why
do kids learn every lyric to their favorite song so easily, but fail to remember
what a noun does in a sentence? And so, Schoolhouse
Rock Live! was introduced as a
Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, science and
politics through clever, tuneful songs. Now this Emmy award wining, pop culture
phenomenon is lighting up the stage in San Marcos.
Rock Live! is a fun and
educational show that will be familiar to many. Remember
those great songs you heard on TV for so many years, but couldn’t get out of
your head? Schoolhouse
Rock Live! includes such classic hits as, “Conjunction Junction,
What’s Your Function,” “Interplanet Janet,” and “I’m Just a Bill.”
Don’t be surprised if you leave the theater humming these tunes again.
And what about the dancing – this show also includes high energy, show
stopping dance numbers that will get you moving in your seat.
cast includes local actors Amy Morley of Escondido (Ms. Miser),
Michael Sanchez of San Diego (History), Brett
Dunn of Escondido (Science), Jon White
of San Diego (Math), and Christina
Kilpatrick of Escondido (English).
