Diego - We’re thrilled to announce our CYT production of Schoolhouse

7:00pm and May 15, 16 & 22 @ 2:00pm. 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.

too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as
governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport
with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures
the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. 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. The motion
picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
