Plot Summary:  Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr is one of musical theatre’s brightest and most innovative shows. Based on the Emmy Award-winning 1970s educational animated TV series, Schoolhouse uses the familiar songs from the cartoons to teach grammar, math, science, history, social studies and political science in this energetic musical, while telling the story of Tom, a young teacher nervously anticipating his first day on the job.  Tom 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 like "Just a Bill," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly" and "Conjunction Junction" bring Tom’s lesson plans vividly to life.

Character Breakdown: This show is for children, ages 5-16.

Tom (Male, no solo singing)
The idealistic young teacher and hero of our story. He is nervous about his first day of teaching, yet gradually becomes more at ease as the show continues.  He is amiable, likable, and charming. 

George (Male, Vocal range: Bb2 to E4 )
A marvelous character role. He takes the lead on "Three Is A Magic Number" and "Just A Bill." Needs to be a good singer and a great character actor. George in particular is a calming presence and excellent cheerleader for Tom. He is caring and in control.

Dori (Female Vocal range: A3 to C5)
Takes the lead on "A Noun Is A Person, Place, Or Thing," "The Preamble" and "Elbow Room." This actress needs to be a strong singer. She goofiest of the gang, often acting silly and being playful.

Shulie (Female Vocal range: G3 to C5)
Sweet and genuine. She is featured in "Unpack Your Adjectives" and takes the lead on "Interplanet Janet." Needs to be very likable. 

Joe (Male Vocal range: D3 to E4)
Definitely one cool kid. He's laid back and fun-loving. 


Dina (Female Vocal range: Bb3 to C5)
Mature, thoughtful, and grounded. Dina is featured in "Unpack Your Adjectives" and takes the lead on "Interjections." Should be a good, strong singer with an ability to sing harmony. 

Elvis (Male Vocal range: B2 to D4)
A great role for a fantastic character actor. Needs to have a big personality that can embody the king of rock and roll! 

Janet (Female Vocal range: C4 to  D5)
A good featured role for a great singer and actor with lots of personality! She leads "Interplanet Janet" with Shulie.
