Second Street Players' "Sclhool House Rock" debuts May That modest little Bill has come fight off of Capitol Hill, joined by Interplanet Janet and the hero, Ze- ro, and all the other cartoon char- acters of "School House Rock," and they are making a home for themselves on stage at Second Street Players' Riverfront The- atre. Taken directly from the Satur- day morning TV series of educa- tional cartoon snippets, the new musical, "School House Rock Live!" makes a Delaware debut with Second Street May 16, 17, l g, 23, 24 and 25. After running for two years of sold out perfor- mances in Chicago, the show was released to tour, and then to com- munity groups. A fall of 1996 run in Philadelphia earned reviews that called it a "bell-finger" and a "happy, high-spirited, entertaining little show." The director of Second Street's production, Becky Chambers, calls it a sure-fire sing-along for both the kids who sat through "Conjunction Junction" and "A Noun is a Person, Place or Thing," as well as for the parents who served them Cocoa Puffs along with Saturday morning cartoons. The animated educational videos still pop Ul from time to time, and, even today, teachers will never know what students might be singing the Preamble to the "Con- stitution under their breath as they take a civics test. History of the suffrage move- ment, and how bills become laws as well as the now-familiar Pre- amble, are subjects included in the show's tunes along with musical math lessons, pertinent punctua- tion and gratuitous grammar set to a soft rock beat. Tying the 20+ list of songs to- gether is the tale of a new teacher nervously anticipating facing a classroom of third graders for the first time. The accommodating cartoon characters from "School House Rock" shed their electronic ties to television and come to sing the teacher's mind to ease.  The show features a cast of singers from several communities in southern Delaware. Appealing in "School House Rock Live!" are Amanda Gaglione and Nancy Broadhurst of Milton, Kristin Przywara, Jason Laurits and Jen- nie Slentz of Dover, Jacob Nor- fleet, Jeriemiah Thompson and Roger VanGorder of Lincoln, Katie Parkhill of Magnolia, Char- lie Mulrooney of Milford and Tommi Barrett of Houston. The show is directed by Chambers and the music director is Paul Blead- ow. In cooperation with the Bank- ing House Inn in historic Milford, theatre patrons have the opportu- nity to go to the Banking House before they come to the "School House." The restaurant and the- atre group offer a dinner/theatre package for $30. Available before Friday and Saturday night perfor- mances, and before or after Sun- day matinees, the fixed price meal offers theatre-goers their choice of beef, chicken or fish entree, and the meal incliJdes salad, dessert and tea or coffee.
