A loose, revue-like structure allows for a great deal of flexibility in staging and cast size in this energetic musical, which follows Tom, a young schoolteacher, who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs as "Just a Bill," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly" and "Conjunction Junction" bring his lesson plans vividly to life.
• All rehearsals will be held at Prairie Center in Otsego
• Please bring a lunch. There is a refrigerator and microwave onsite. 
“This Activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the central MN Arts Board,thanks to Legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.” 
Character Breakdown

Tom
The idealistic young teacher and hero of our story. He is nervous about his first day of teaching, yet gradually becomes more at ease as the show continues. 

George
A marvelous character role. He takes the lead on "Three Is A Magic Number" and "Just A Bill." George in particular is a calming presence and excellent cheerleader for Tom. He is the romantic, and he is caring and in control.

Dori
Takes the lead on "A Noun Is A Person, Place, Or Thing," "The Preamble" and "Elbow Room." She goofiest of the gang, often acting silly and being playful.

Shulie
Sweet and genuine. She is featured in "Unpack Your Adjectives" and takes the lead on "Interplanet Janet." 

Joe
Definitely one cool kid. He's laid back and fun-loving. 

Dina
Mature, thoughtful, and grounded. Dina is featured in "Unpack Your Adjectives" and takes the lead on "Interjections." 

Elvis
A great role for a fantastic character actor. 

Janet
A good featured role for a great singer and actor with lots of personality! She leads "Interplanet Janet" with Shulie.

Ensemble
Any young person could be cast in your ensemble. Remember, there are lots of small featured roles in the vignette songs that are easily filled by the ensemble, instead of double-cast with one of the named characters. Feel free to cast Congressmen, Thomas Jefferson, Lewis, Clark, Sacajawea, the Sun, the Planets, the Comet Team, Reginald, Doctor, Geraldine, Gerald, Franklin, the Team and the Crowd from the ensemble.
