'Schoolhouse Rock Live' Imagination Theatre at Glacier Middle School auditorium in Buckley

The cast and crew at Imagination Theatre will wish a happy birthday to an American educational icon Saturday when they present “Schoolhouse Rock Live.”

Guests can re-live their Saturday morning memories as favorite songs are brought to life on stage.

Performances will be at 2 and 7 p.m. at the Glacier Middle School auditorium in Buckley. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for kids 5 to 12 years of age, with those 4 and younger admitted free. Tickets are available at the door.

Forty years ago, an advertising executive noticed his son was having trouble with multiplication tables, but knew the lyrics to many current rock songs. That resulted in “Three is a Magic Number.” That eventually spawned “Grammar Rock,” “America Rock” and “Science Rock,”

The series ran from 1973 to 1985, later revived from 1993 to 1999 with both old and new episodes. Additional episodes were produced as recently as 2009, released on video.
