Schoolhouse Rock snuck education into Saturday mornings from the 70s through the 80s and now it's back and on stage.  Tom is a new teacher with a case of classroom fright. As he hides with his TV the morning before his first day on the job, the cast of Schoolhouse Rock slips out of his TV to prove that learning can be a blast.  Features all of the favorite Schoolhouse Rock songs.
