"School House Rock Live!" con- tinues this weekend at the Second Street Players' Riverfront Theatre in Milford. That famous Bill from Wash- ington is there, the star-seeking Interplanet Janet is set to blast off and the saucy women who suf- fered 'til suffrage will sweep it all up as the cast teaches a course in entertainment. During the show, the audience i:; likely to be pulled into the act for a little song and dance about how circulation keeps everything flowing, and most hands will be in the air as everyone finds counting on their fingers is good exercise for mind and body. Even those people who never leave their seats are sure to see themselves on the television screens that frame the stage. The roving camera catches young and old as they give in to singing along with the songs that teach Saturday morning television addicts good-natured lessons of grammar, math, science and civics. "School House" producer Dan Gaffney said that first weekend audiences proved that all ages re- member and enjoy the songs that feature the famous Bill, sitting on Capitol Hill, the world traveler who captures the audience as she unpacks her adjectives and the en. ergetic engineer who steers the train to "Conjunction Junction." "We had some kids who came right down and sat in the aisle, closer to the stage, so they could see the tv screens and almost be in the action," Gaffney said. "And, their parents and grandparents were back in their seats singing along, too. "it's great the number of adults who come to the show, even with- out kids, and many are finding that it is an excellent family out- ing that everyone enjoys."
