Buckingham Presents: Schoolhouse Rock LIVE, Jr.
The Buckingham Elementary Community was treated to a spectacular show under the direction of Mr. Bill Weir - along with the support of Mrs. Burkholder, Mrs. Raitt and Mrs. Sobusiak! Students in the 5th and 6th grades began in January - working diligently during many after-school rehearsals. Students and staff heard the many catchy songs about adjectives, United States history, multiplication, conjunctions and interjections at the first-ever performance during the day on April 28th. Parents and loved ones returned to their youth as the popular 70's TV show came to life on-stage during two-evening performances April 28th and 29th.
There is so much talent in our school community and Buckingham continues to pride ourselves in celebrating the Arts in school! Congratulations Schoolhouse Rock LIVE Cast!
