Looking for a cast of 6 Diverse, Versatile Actor/Singers of all ethnicities, who move, for this 60-minute version of the live stage show based on the Emmy award winning 1970’s television series.

The musical uses the premise of new teacher Tom's first day of school to showcase 15 of the series' most popular and iconic songs. The rest of the cast plays a figment of "Tom's" imagination, and each represents a different side of him/her, who help Tom get ready for the first day of school.

The television series taught thousands of kids about American History, math, grammar and more, and we're excited for a whole new generation to discover how much fun education can be. MainStreet’s production will be supported by a top-notch creative team and a live band.
