“Schoolhouse Rock Live, Jr.” is based on the Emmy Award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series that became a pop culture phenomenon. It follows Tracey, a young schoolteacher who is nervous about her first day of teaching. She tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of her personality emerge from the set and show her how to win her students over with imagination and music.

“Schoolhouse Rock Live, Jr.” includes memorable songs such as “Just a Bill,” “Interjections” and “Conjunction Junction” that bring Tracey’s lesson plans to life.

This Bellarine show was entirely produced by students, including director Amanda Delbury, choreographer Mikaela McGovern, vocal director Alex Pallen, assistant vocal director Nadia Vito, stage manager Jonathan Leach and assistant stage manager Erin Barrett.  —R.M.
