Here a couple shows that are still preforming, so be sure to see them before they’re gone:
The Schoolhouse Rock Live! is based off an Emmy Award-winning cartoon show that educated kids through music. This performance tells the story of a anxious teacher, Tom, who wants to do great on his first day. To relax, he watches TV only to find that different characters come out of the TV and show him how to be a great teacher for his students. The Schoolhouse Rock Live! will be preforming on Saturday, September 22 at 10:30 am, 2:00 pm, and 7:00 pm as well as Sunday at 3:00 pm at the Columbia Children’s Theater. Get your tickets !
