Touring Season: Schoolhouse Rock Live! and Danny, King of the Basement

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s Resident Touring Company weaves music and storytelling to bring valuable lessons to life through the power of theatre. The following offerings are available throughout the current year:

Themes: Friendship, identity, inclusion
Get ready to rock as the pop culture phenomenon hits the stage. The alarm clock rings and Tom awakens, nervous to start his first day of teaching. He turns on the TV to relax and is surprised when the voices he hears in his head come to life as characters in the television set! Tom is hesitant at first to accept them, but eventually they help him see how great a teacher he has been all along. For grades K-5th

Themes: Poverty, friendship, the power of positivity
A powerful story that proves home is more than simply where you live. 10-year-old Danny “Delco” Carter is the “king of moving.” When Danny and his mom move into a basement apartment on an upscale street, the kids he meets have more material things, but they seem to have bigger challenges than he realizes. Danny’s imaginative play creates a sense of community that allows his friends to cope with their problems and, ultimately, to help Danny – because Danny’s challenge isn’t losing a home – it’s gaining one (recommended for grades 4th – 7th).
