Darke County Center for the Arts will present Schoolhouse Rock Live! at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Sunday, March 1 at 2 p.m. “This fast-moving, energetic show will rock our stage, delighting kids and engaging adults with it's pure fun and excitement,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. Based on the popular cartoon series that first hit TV screens in 1973, the show features fondly remembered songs such as “Conjunction Junction” and “Just a Bill” that creatively teach academic subjects to youngsters who believe that they are just having a good time listening to music.

Schoolhouse Rock Live! is a production of Childsplay, a Tempe, Arizona theatre company of professional adult artists who perform for young audiences and their families. This show offers a new perspective on the classic TV series, reflecting today's digital age and utilizing multimedia elements as well as traditional choreography and set design to tell its story. “The show will bring back great memories for adults, while connecting directly with today's youngsters and their lives,” Rawlins stated.

DCCA's Family Theatre Series was established to provide local families the opportunity to enjoy professional theatrical productions within their home community at an economical cost. Tickets are $5; these low ticket prices are made possible by the contributions provided by the following sponsors: DP & L Company Foundation, Second National Bank, Greenville Federal, Greyson James Steyer Fund of the Darke County Foundation, The Andersons Marathon LLC, Edison Community College, Gordon Orthodontics, Jordan Insurance Agency, Wayne Healthcare, and Greenville Rotary Club.
