Journey to Rock the Schoolhouse This May

Journey Theater Arts Group (not the band, though they will be coming to the Clark Co. Amphitheater this summer) presents SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! JR., based on the Emmy® Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series and pop culture phenomenon, one of the most fun musicals ever to hit the stage. The junior version features a bevy of young performers.

This energetic musical follows Tom, a young school teacher who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs as “Just A Bill,” “Interplanet Janet,” “Interjections” and “Conjunction Junction” bring his lesson plans vividly to life.

Performances are May 16 – 24, 2014 at Fort Vancouver High School. Friday showings at 7 p.m., Saturday showings at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at or by calling 360.750.8550.

Pre-sale adult tickets are $12. Youth and senior tickets are $10. The May 17, 7 p.m. showing is a “family day” performance with all tickets $10 in advance. Tickets for all performances will be $3 more at the door.

School Day Performances will be offered at 9:30 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 21. Tickets are $6 each for groups of 10 – 99 and $5 each for groups of 100 or more, with one free ticket for every 15 purchased. Call our office to arrange to bring your class or home school group!
