Filed under: art,calendar,family,fun,Leelanau,leland,schools,st mary,theater — Andrew McFarlane @ 10:38 am

Schoolhouse Rock Live

Fifty high school and middle school students from Leland Public School and St. Mary's School of Lake Leelanau — will take center stage in a joint production of SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE!, which debuts Friday at Leland's Performing Arts Center. SHRL! Is a high-energy, colorful musical based on the series of short educational films that aired alongside ABC TV's Saturday morning cartoon lineup throughout most of the 1970s and 80s.

There will be seven shows, starting this Friday, May 11, and continuing on the 12th, 13th, 18th, 19th, and 20th and you can get details and ticket information by calling Leland School at 231-256-9857.

An interesting thing about the performance is that it demonstrates how a public school and a private school are working together to offer arts experiences for their students in a time of dramatically shrinking budgets.

I don't really see any way that I can get out of this post without a YouTube video, so here it is!
