I certainly knew the material well, Schoolhouse Rock was a bright spot on Saturday mornings growing up.
Maybe it’s because I helped paint one of the sets. Or it was because Tom built and painted all the rest of the sets.
Perhaps it was the fact that all three kids from my partners at work were involved.
I don’t know what conspired, probably a combination of all these things. But seeing this school come together and put on the musical filled my heart with pride and joy.
