Community News 

Dexter Community Players (DCP) will present School House Rock Live!, July 12, 13 and 14 at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 8265 Dexter-Chelsea Rd., in Dexter. 

A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The Emmy Award-winning 1970s Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math and more through clever, tuneful songs is not only making a small- screen comeback, it’s lighting up stages everywhere – from school multi-purpose rooms to university and regional theatres all around the country.  

Schoolhouse Rock Live! follows Tom, a school teacher 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, through such songs as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction.” 

 Directed by Jeff Boyer, Music Directed by Shelby Dragone, and Assistant Directed/Choreographed by Gosia Hoot. 

Show dates: July 12 and 13 at 7pm; July 13 and 14 at 2pm.  

Beer, Wine and Cocktails available at evening performances. Soft drinks and concessions available for purchase at all performances. 

Advance tickets are available online at www.dextercommunityplayers.org. 

Tickets start at $15.
