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 Diego. Schoolhouse 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.

When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain.

Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.
