Oh "Schoolhouse Rock," what would my childhood have been without you? Those who grew up on the program know how much of their comprehension of conjunctions, bones, and the electoral college can be attributed to its catchy, education tunes. The Emmy-Award winning Saturday-morning cartoon series has been teaching lessons on history, grammar, math and politics since the 1970's. The classic stories and favorite songs are now making their way to the Albuquerque stage with "Schoolhouse Rock Live." Follow the story of Tom, a nervous school teacher just trying to relax with a bit of television, as he is bombarded with facets of his personality who emerge to show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Visit theboxabq.com for tickets and more information on this family-friendly show. (Emily Aragon)
