‘Magic School Bus Live!’ cruises into Rose

TERRE HAUTE — America’s favorite bus zooms to the stage at the Hatfield Hall Theater on the campus of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The all-new 25th anniversary educational musical adventure is aimed at children, ages 5-8, but promises to be entertaining for the entire family. “Magic School Bus Live! The Climate Challenge,” is based on the best-selling and award winning Scholastic book series for children. The lively family-friendly show is presented by Maximum Entertainment Productions in association with Bay Area Children's Theatre and Oregon Children’s Theatre.

The musical interpretation focuses on one of the most important environmental issues facing the Earth today: climate change. As Ms. Frizzle and her students do research for their class play on climate, they hop on the Magic School Bus to learn how recycling, alternative energy, and conservation can make a difference in the world. Jessica Payne leads the cast as the fun-loving Ms. Frizzle, with Kyle Payne, Catherine Gloria, Jaqueline Goalwin, Brian Conway, and Calia Johnson as her beloved students.

Based on the best-selling Scholastic book series written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen, “The Magic School Bus” is an Emmy Award-winning animated television series that is seen in more than 39 countries and 16 languages. It currently airs on the Qubo Channel in the United States. With more than 58 million books in print, the brand has won numerous industry excellence awards, including two Emmys for Lily Tomlin for her portrayal of Ms. Frizzle in the TV series. The series has been a favorite venue for guest celebrity voices as well, including those of Dolly Parton, Wynonna Judd, Dabney Coleman, Bebe Neuwirth, Tyne Daly, Swoozie Kurtz, Rita Moreno, Ed Asner, and Tony Randall, among others.

Tickets will be available in advance at Hatfield Hall Ticket Desk at Rose-Hulman, 5500 Wabash Ave., or by calling (812) 877-8544. Tickets are $5 each and will also be sold at the door as available.
